John Vervaeke and Zachary Stein: Kairos, Logos, and Post-Conventional Faith

Play
Read more

In this wide ranging conversation we discussed:  Kairos and crisis, Civilisational adolescence, Piaget and stages of development, AI and caring Warm Data, The artist and the Prophet, The Bildung movement, Reintegration of the good the true and the beautiful, Post conventional morality,  Faith and emergence, Post formal faith, The unattainable ideal, Serious play   And so much more ...  

John Vervaeke is a professor at the University of Toronto and the creator of the popular online YouTube Series ‘Awakening from The Meaning Crisis’, which is a rich feast of cognitive science, philosophy, religion, and the history of ideas.  What makes Vervaeke special in my opinion is the breadth of his work, but his courage descend the ivory tower and talk to people ‘on the street’—and to exemplify his ideas.  His hero is Socrates, and he embodies the living dialogue and courage that Socrates represents.    

Zak Stein is philosopher of education working at the interface of psychology, metaphysics, and politics. He has published two books, including Education in Time Between Worlds, along with dozens of articles. This writing was done as he worked co-founding a non-profit and think tank, as well as teaching graduate students at Harvard, and consulting with technology start-ups. Zak is a long time meditator, musician and caregiver, which has shaped him more than any professional engagements.  (Source: https://www.systems-souls-society.com)

Zachary Stein - COVID-19: A War Broke out in Heaven

Play
Read more

“I have never been through a civilisation-wide transformation before, and neither have you; we are in uncharted waters together. There is a war taking place in heaven concerning the soul of humanity, and it will be fought in each person’s heart, every day, without rest, and into the foreseeable future. I have no choice but to sound metaphysical and religious, because this is where the psyche goes when it enters the liminal.”
