WHO AM I? (6) - LANGUAGE

WHO AM I? (6) - LANGUAGE

October 3, 2015

In the sixth episode of  the series Who Am I?, we question the question itself. Does it make sense? Or is its very asking a case of 'the bewitchment of our intelligence by language'? And if that is the case, shouldn't we dissolve the question rather than imagining that we have an answer to it?

You can hear the wind and somebody with a megaphone in the distance. Nietzsche looms large as a trenchant critic of the various Platonisms. Meanwhile, this ordinary world is the Buddha heaven, if only we can see it. Hierarchical metaphysics mystify this at the same time as they turn earth into hell with their hierarchical cast systems and vicious patriarchy. Yet still, it's not all surface. The horizontal metaphor is shit too. Convolutions innit?! [18 minutes. Free.]

THE MEANING OF LIFE IS LIFE

August 25, 2015

In this podcast, Anna and Pete discuss the meaning of life and how grand narratives supply off-the-peg answers to the big conundrums that face human beings by reference to a 'transcendental guarantee'. We find this strategy for ameliorating meaninglessness to be defective on a number of counts and recommend that individuals freely choose and pursue their own projects whilst dancing under the open sky.
