Spirituality and Politics - THE 'ART OF THINKING' Greg Scorzo with Rick Repetti.

Episode 13,   Sep 29, 2021, 05:34 PM

In this podcast, Greg Scorzo talks to professor of philosophy Dr Rick Ripetti, who teaches at The City University of New York. They discuss the veridicality of supernatural experiences, the tensions between philosophy and religious mysticism, why extremists see themselves as holding the moral high ground, how to discuss politics in an era of extreme political polarisation, whether Rand's philosophy is collectivist, the epistemic virtues of the political spectrum, sophistry, whether identity politics is a religion, marginalisation and narcissism, special pleading fallacies, progressivism and elitism, the ethics of describing people as “having been manipulated”, the complexity of Donald Trump, and the pros and cons of mindfulness.

Also listen to recorded dialogues from Greg Scorzo's debut novel 'Love Before Covid,'  - traumatic (sur)realism at it's best. An experimental and extreme collection of real-time dialogues, traversing a complex moral maze of how love is being impacted by gender politics in these polarised political times. Exploring the nature of love and drawing focus to the dark side of romance, procreation and sex, it deals unsparingly with unpredictable behaviour, abuse, depravity and forgiveness. To find out what healthy love could be, this book explores what it shouldn’t be. "Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other." - Carl Jung
