This week, we are joined by Dean of Religion at Vassar, Dr Christopher White.
Christopher joins us to discuss his recent book, Other Worlds: Spirituality and the Search for Invisible Dimensions. Along the way, we talk Flatland, Narnia, the role of dreams in one's life and the true merit of 'fantasy' fiction.
Really good stuff.
This week, we speak to James Sullivan. James is a fellow podcaster and -more importantly- a fellow fan of Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea series.
So these books form the through-line for a wide ranging discussion on the state of modern philosophy, theories of mind, the role of fantasy fiction and what might be called subversive, anarcho-pacifist self-transformation.
For those of you who have already picked up a copy of my latest book, The Chaos Protocols, you’ll no doubt have detected Charles’s influence in a few of the chapters. He's among the cleverest independent financial minds out there today.
We don't just talk the Benjamins, however. We also talk gardening, nutrition, philosophy, what to study at college, digital currencies, and how talking about money is really talking about meaning, and the return of the real.
