Quentin Meillassoux in English at the Speculative Realism Conference (Episode 5)

(Note: Audio quality improves after the first few minutes of the lecture!)  This podcast features French philosopher Quentin Meillassoux's lecture in English at the Speculative Realism conference held at Goldmiths, University of London in 2007. The recent translation of Meillassoux's "After Finitude" and a spate of interpretations of his work have brought him greater recognition in the English-speaking world. As far as I know this is the only recording of him giving a talk in English, however.
