ALL THINGS COSMIC
Interconnecting Science, Philosophy, and Art
All Things Cosmic is a podcast from the Center for Process Studies that engages cutting edge discourses across disciplines, from science, philosophy and religion, to art, aesthetics and activism. Through informal interviews of scholars and artists whose work contributes or is relevant to process modes thought, All Things Cosmic situates its discourse among three core convictions: that creative evolution, axiological persuasion and aesthetic articulation are fundamental to the cosmos. Far from being dislocations in a foreign universe, human existence, experience, and expression are exemplifications of all things cosmic.
