The Impossible David Lynch THE 'ART OF THINKING.' Greg Scorzo with Todd McGowan

Episode 19,   Nov 21, 2021, 01:57 PM

In this Art of Thinking podcast, philosopher Greg Scorzo talks to Todd McGowan about his book, The Impossible David Lynch (2002). The podcast examines Todd’s theories explaining the meaning of three David Lynch movies: Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, and Eraserhead. Also discussed is how McGowan analyses all three movies using the Lacanian conceptualisations of desire and fantasy. Throughout the podcast, Scorzo and McGowan discuss what Lynch’s movies can teach us about politics, the superego, jealousy, love, truth, responsibility, capitalism, time off of work, and the potential we all have to follow our fantasies to the very end. This podcast contains movie spoilers.

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
