In this season finale, Élaina interviews Jimena Solé, a professor of philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires. Jimena talks about her dislike of school growing up, her discovery of Spinoza, and why she believes that philosophising in Argentina and South America can be a transformative decolonial practice.

The first half of the episode focuses on Jimena’s personal link to philosophy and the second half covers her work on the reception of European theories in Argentina.
