Together with philosopher Renate Schepen, I developed an interactive documentary lecture-show in which philosopher Sophie Bọ́sẹ̀dé Olúwọlé (1935 – 2018) is present in film-form.
We both talk about our experiences meeting and her, and get deeper into the concept of binary complementarity – an important aspect of Olúwọlé’s work on traditional Yorùbá philosophy.

In this show we honour this remarkable philosopher, as well as the traditional Ifá system, which she put on the map for its philosophical value.
