Duarte is host and producer of The Dead Zone,Musings, Drums, and Black Diamond Discography, radio programs broadcast on 88.7FM WRHU.ORG (Radio Hofstra University) that are dedicated to exploring the intersections between improvisational music and philosophy. In addition to continuing his engagement with the thought of Hannah Arendt and Martin Heidegger, Duarte's current scholarship is focusing on the ontology of rhythm and the musicality of Being, and its implication for resonant subjectivity and intersubjectivity. Specifically, Duarte is responding to Luce Irigaray’s call for the invention of a 'new logic' of thinking. His starting point is Du Bois’ deployment of the spirituals, which is to say, the musicality/lyrical form of Du Bois philosophy. Dovetailing Du Bois’ project with his recent work in Latin American philosophy, Duarte is exploring the lyrical ontology of sentipensar. The result is the next stage of Duarte’s experiments in prosaic poetics, or a poetic philosophy, which he initiated with Being and Learning.
