The following is a conversation between Gaymon Bennett and anthropologist Anthony Stavrianakis about the Challenge of Collaboration. The conversation took place in a noisy kitchen at Berkeley University Campus. Since 2006 Anthony Stavrianakis has been working closely with Paul Rabinow on The STIR project (Socio Technical Integration Research), The Synthetic Biology Engineering Research Center (SynBERC), and the bio hackerspace, Biocurius. Bennett and Stavrianakis also go on to discuss the nature of ontology and the application of philosophical concepts to engaged/practical research.
