This talk will reflect on my current interdisciplinary project, which asks what would a philosophy of time look like if it were to arise from dialogues with ecologists, rather than physicists or psychologists. In particular I’m interested in discussing issues of method from the perspective of a philosopher engaged in ‘field research’. How might we approach interviews, field notes, focus groups in ways which draw on philosophical approaches and yet don’t ignore the many lessons and warnings from social scientists?
