Is Metamodernism an Answer to our Postmodern Troubles?

An interview with Hanzi Freinacht The Listening Society by Hanzi Freinacht speaks in a new and fresh way about how humanity can get beyond the many crises of our time. It offers us metamodernism. This isn’t just a new term or slogan but a deep examination of the fault lines that are fragmenting our society. For about thirty years, postmodern philosophy has been popular as a critique of our modern world’s roots in reductionism and materialism–and of course, its culmination in the neoliberal economy. The story of science and progress, postmodern philosophy said, is not necessarily true. Viewed from the perspective of the oppressed and weak, the progress of civilization often amounts to little more than exploitation, smoke screens, excuses, and a more systematized oppression. While this is an important and valid critique, the postmodern approach has its own onesidedness. With its pluralistic relativism, where there is no truth anymore, postmodernity created its own limitations. As a...

Kufunda: Creating a Waldorf-Inspired Village in Zimbabwe

A conversation with Maaianne Knuth Maaianne Knuth is co-founder of Kufunda, which is both a village and a learning center one hour outside Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. This village is a meeting place in many ways–most particularly, it is a place where African culture meets Waldorf education. While Waldorf education, developed by Rudolf Steiner, has been spreading rapidly from Brazil to China, the encounter between Zimbabwean culture and Waldorf holds the potential to change both. The inspiration of Rudolf Steiner and his philosophy, Anthroposophy, isn’t just limited to the village school, though. Recently, Maaianne was a key organizer of an All African Anthropsosophic Training where teachers, organic farmers, nurses, and other educators met from all over Africa to explore the practical potential of Anthroposophy for Africa. Maaianne, who is both Danish and Zimbabwean, is a sensitive observer of this meeting and the potential within it for transformation. She invites us to lear...

David Abram: Becoming Animal — The World-Changing Power of Sensuality

How can we re-envision and re-embody our relatedness within the entire living ecosystem? Clearly, the divisions that we have made between ourselves as humans and the rest of life are the root of the crises that we and the planet are facing. David Abram’s life and work has been a constant re-membering of our relatedness. He breaks boundaries by making surprising connections: indigenous wisdom and Continental philosophy, a magician who confounds your perception and a writer who opens your eyes. His classic book, The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-than-Human World, published in 1996, launched several fields, like ecopsychology, and gave new language to express the entangled material world that all growing things are one with. He explores the big questions through a deep encounter with the potential of our humanness. How, he asks, can our capacity to sense, our animal sensuality, transform us and our world? In this week’s Radio evolve, Thomas Steininger and D...

Joe Brewer: Managing the Global Collapse

Joe Brewer talks a lot about the global collapse — not the collapse that is going to happen, but the global collapse that we are already in. As Joe says, one of the mistakes we make is that we think of the global collapse as a single catastrophic event when actually it is a long term process. For instance, it took the Roman Empire 300 years to collapse. We are in the midst, and how far we are in, we don’t know. Joe is a complexity researcher and innovation strategist. He developed communication strategy for the UK World Wildlife Federation and Oxfam, Great Britain, among many other projects. Joe worked for several years at the Center for Complex Systems Research where he studied pattern formation in self-organizing systems However, when Joe talks about managing the collapse, he means something very different than one would expect. He does not talk about technological answers but about how can we respond with our humanness to what is happening, about how we need to begin with remor...

Geoff Fitch: We Space – the new frontier of conscious evolution

A new wave of mindfulness practice is emerging in different parts of the world. Mindfulness practices are a very new development in our postmodern culture. Only twenty years ago, if mindfulness was known at all, it was known as a meditation practice with Buddhist roots practiced by spiritually oriented people. Now mindfulness has gone mainstream–and, at the same time, mindfulness is taking a new turn. Many groups in Europe and America are experimenting with collective forms of mindfulness–We-Space practices, such as Collective Presencing, Mutual Awakening, Theory U, and more. Geoff Fitch, a founder ofPacific Integral, is one of the pioneers of the new collective mindfulness. He sometimes speaks of it as the Kosmic-We. His work allows him to open this new We Space in groups and organizations.What is the potential for individual and collective transformation that Geoff sees in these new practices? This week in Radioevolve, Thomas Steininger talks with Geoff Fitch about We-Space as a...

Roger Walsh: What does it mean to live a good life?

What is a good life? It is a simple question, but of course it isn’t really. The lives that we live rest on the many answers that we give to this question. Roger Walsh is someone who, in pursuing deep questions about the good life, has lived an outstanding life. Born in Australia, he is professor of Psychiatry, Philosophy, and Anthropology at the University of California. Walsh is widely respected for his views on altered states of consciousness in relation to religious experience. He is was one of the pioneers of transpersonal psychology and integral thinking. In his manybooksabout essential spirituality and the world’s great Wisdom traditions, there is always a thread that shines through. That thread is the question, as he once put it, „What does it mean to live wisely and well, and what does it take?“ The answer to that question has a particular urgency today. We live in a troubled world. There is a new need for spiritual depth, but also a need to understand the psychological...

Joran Slane Oppelt: A dialogue with Joran Slane Oppelt

A dialogue with Joran Slane OppeltDiese Woche im globalen und englischsprachigen Angebot von Radioevolve:We still live in a secular age. So much so that many people with a deep spiritual longing don’t identify themselves with the traditional religions at all. Instead they see themselves as “spiritual but not religious.” Even people who claim to be atheists, like the well-known book author Sam Harris, are looking for a secular and scientific spirituality that that does not see itself as a form of religion. Joran Slane Oppelt has not created a new religion, but he has founded a new church, the Integral Church, which is also the title ofhis new book. This week on Radioevolve, Thomas Steininger will talk with Joran about whether we may need more than a purely individualistic and secular spirituality. Religion has always meant community: a collective and shared spiritual path. Joran’s urge to develop an open integral spiritual community was also behind his project of an Integral Chur...

Agota Eva Ruzsa: Healing the Shadows of Europe

European culture dominated the world in the last 500 years. European enlightenment is a cultural achievement with a lot of light but also many shadows that became in recent years more obvious for many people around the globe. Agota Eva Ruzsa does not come from one of the main European colonial powers. She comes from Hungary, where she works as a wisdomweaver. As a creative member of Club of Budapest and an educator on dialogue at the Universities in Budapest/ Hungary, she knows of the wounds and shadows of Europes complex history and heritage. She has specialized in developing capacities to facilitate systemic and transformative dialogues working for many years with Peter Senge and Otto Scharmer and their processes of social presencing. How attune to something like a cosmic Intelligence, so that we may co-create collective and heal our cultural shadows. Thomas Steininger talks with Agota Eva Ruzsa about healing the shadows of Europe.

Jeremy Johnson: Jean Gebser – An Integral Thinker for the 21 Century

Jeremy Johnson, a rising voice among integral thinkers, has a passion for the work of Jean Gebser. Gebser, the German/Swiss philosopher who died in 1973, is one of those thinkers whose work is more known than his name. He may, in fact, have been the first thinker to coin the term „Integral Consciousness,“ predicting its emergence 70 years ago. He also traced the development of archaic, mythic, and mental consciousness, which he called „mutations of consiousness,“ in a different, sometimes more thought-provoking way than the popular integral thinking of our time. Jeremy Johnson, who heads the American Jean Gebser society, sees in this prescient thinker a voice for the future. In his own books and podcasts, Jeremy explores Gebser’s particular contribution to our future. Jean Gebser, according to Jeremy, allows us to think about the young and troublesome 21st Century in a surprising and profound way. This week in Radio evolve, Thomas Steininger speaks with Jeremy Johnson about Jean Gebser as an integral thinker for the 21st Century.

Thomas de Zengotita: The Light and Shadow of Postmodernism

Philosophy often seems to be a subject that floats above our heads and lacks relevance to our daily lives. For the anthropologist and philosopher Thomas de Zengotita, philosophical understanding is urgent. Today, he observes, the cultural conflicts that we are in the midst of are directly related to a rather obscure set of philosophical arguments that can be grouped under the heading “postmodernism.” Zengotita would go so far as to say that the conflicts of our times center on the strengths and weaknesses of postmodernism. Postmodernism, for example, argues that truth is relative, depending on one’s perspective. Is it the fault of postmodern philosophy, then, that so many people so easily dismiss news as fake and no longer believe that there is truth at all? Or could postmodernity have anticipated the new media reality that we all are living in, where we all become performers in a a big global contest for attention? For the past few decades, Zengotita has been working and writing to find a way beyond postmodernism. Long before Facebook, he wrote Mediated: How the Media Shapes Your World and the Way You Live in It, anticipating by a decade the downside of our mediated social reality. His latest book — for the hardcore philosopher — is Postmodern Theory and Progressive Politics: Toward a New Humanism, which will be published by Palgrave in 2019. In Radio evolve this week, Thomas Steininger speaks with Thomas de Zengotita about the deeper challenges of our time that we have to face if want to find a way beyond relativism to something like a new universal humanism.
