AudioSophia 2 - "Autonomy and Aesthetic Engagement"
A portrait of Joyce to go with the theme of Nguyen's work.This is an unabridged audio rendition of a work of academic philosophy. It is accessible in content, but be forewarned: it's long and was not written for a public audience. It's not the normal style of Reductio, so we've set it apart as part of a series called "AudioSophia".I hope you enjoy it!Thi Nguyen's Website:https://objectionable.net/
