Sentientism: Evidence Based Compassion

Compassion for every sentient being: An unreachable Utopian vision, or practically attainable? In this second Beyond Human Relations podcast, Annika van den Born goes into conversation with Jamie Woodhouse, on Sentientism. Sentientism is a philosophy or worldview – a way of thinking about what to believe and what we should care about. Sentientists use scientific evidence and reason to work out what to believe in, so they reject supernatural beliefs. Sentientists also have compassion for all sentient beings – any being capable of suffering. Usually, this concerns human and nonhuman animals. What are exemplary cases for the broad practice of Sentientism? And what are the difficulties that Sentientists have to cope with in their research? After a 23-year career as management consultant, Jamie Woodhouse left his corporate role as a Managing Director in 2017 to pursue a range of new projects, including the development of Sentientism as a philosophy and a movement.” About the host: Annika is a master student in Philosophy of Behavioural Sciences at Radboud University.

Landscaping Facts and Fiction – Beyond Human Relations

Future Based’s podcast series on ‘Beyond Human Relations’, is hosted by Michelle Geraerts. Michelle is a PhD student at University of Amsterdam's department of Anthropology, and she specialises in natural resources. She is familiar with regular as well as creative approaches to qualitative research, and employs methods such as sensory ethnography.

In this podcast, Michelle goes into conversation with artist and DJ Vanessa Opoku. What is the relation between our collective and individual memory, and the way we give form to our surroundings? What is fact, and what is fiction? Is there even a strict distinction between these two domains of reality? Questions like the former will be central to their discussion. Vanessa Opoku is a visual artist, filmmaker and DJ and

Scientific Imagination

Ruvimbo Samanga on space law and imagination.

Scientific Imagination, is an ongoing research project of the Future Based platform, hosted and curated by philosopher of science Sabine Winters. The philosophical quest of this project is based on the wish to understand more about the role of imagination in our understanding of the world. Furthermore, the different perspectives on the function of imagination, represents a wider perspective on questions on human knowledge: how we obtain knowledge and which beliefs we hold about the methodologies in acquiring knowledge. The website is under construction and will be launched in the first week of August ’22 with new podcast episodes and a film event programme.
