Rank #2: 117 | Jungian Typology - 04 - INFJ

Podcast cover
Read more

Here is a short four-part series in which some of the core essentials of Jungian typology are distilled. In part 1, we look at the issue of attitude (extroversion and introversion); in part 2, we unpack the perceiving/learning functions (sensation and intuition); in part 3, we look at the judging/deciding functions (feeling and thinking); and in part 4, we use the INFJ as a case study to explore how Jungian typology may help us to think about type and growth. The aim of the series is to get past the usual caricatures of Jung's thinking that we find in some Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) descriptions. For those who want to take this a little further, here are some resources that you might find helpful:

Function axes book: https://www.idrlabs.com/downloads/function-axes-in-jungian-typology.php

Naomi Quenk's 'Was That Really Me?' is also very useful for exploring the significance of the so-called "inferior function of each type."

Rank #3: 75 | Footnotes to Exodus, Part 1 - Slavery

Podcast cover
Read more

This is the first in a series looking at the meaning and resonancnes of the book of Exodus, which is one of the finest literary achievements in human history. This series draws from a number of sources, from both Jewish and Christian traditions, as well as including a pinch of contemporary philosophy, to explore the way that the Exodus story still speaks to us today no matter who we are and no matter our own ideological commitments.

Rank #4: 55 | Footnotes to Job, Part 2 - A Polyphonic Mind

Podcast cover
Read more

The book of Job is one of the most brilliant and perplexing literary works to grace the stage of the human drama; and this is the second episode in a series on Unorthodoxy that focuses on this amazing book. The aim in this series is to look for unfamiliar nuggets of brilliance in what is, for many, an overly familiar text. In this episode, we take a look at the absurd but surprisingly helpful question of what JS Bach can teach us about reading the book of Job, as well as what the idea of polyphony might have to say about a particular kind of consciousness or conscious awareness. Although this series is rooted in solid scholarship, scholarly detail has needed to be sacrificed for the sake of what is hopefully a more pleasant listening experience.

Podcast cover

The book of Job is one of the most brilliant and perplexing literary works to grace the stage of the human drama; and this is the third episode in a series on Unorthodoxy that focuses on this amazing book. The aim in this series is to look for unfamiliar nuggets of brilliance in what is, for many, an overly familiar text. In this episode, we'll take a look at the question of the meaning of life with reference to some of the coordinates for meaning that we find within the book of Job. To help us with the question of life's meaning, there's a bit of advice here from Viktor Frankl and Nietzsche thrown into the mix too.

Rank #8: 94 | The Enneagram of Mimetic Desire - 01 - Order and Chaos in Mythology and Humanity

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode forms part of a unique approach to the enneagram of personality called the enneagram of mimetic desire. This approach combines insights from mimetic psychology (informed especially by the thinking of René Girard and J-M Oughourlian) and various teachings on the enneagram to create a tool for discerning how desire works through us and those around us. The broader aim of the enneagram of mimetic desire is to help us to notice the desires we’re emulating and to figure out those desires that bring us into conflict with us, and in so doing to help us to better navigate our relationships.

This is a recording of the second part of a two-part talk series on the Enneagram (The first part can be listened to in episode 52 of this podcast). The focus of this talk is on personal growth and on the importance of, in the process of growing, being reconciled to what psychoanalysts call the Unconscious: the shadow-side of the self and what Enneagram teachers refer to as the "soul child."

How can we understand the relationship between conformity and authority? In this episode, I refer to the work of the famous psychologist Stanley Milgram, as well as the movie Experimenter that was recently made about him. I also tell one of Anthony De Mello's parables and talk about Star Wars merchandise.

Rank #15: 13 | Hijacking minds

Podcast cover
Read more

Persuasion is ubiquitous. Everything in our contexts has the potential to sway our thoughts and behaviours. Manipulation can happen on smaller and larger scales, and can affect all of us. So how does persuasion work? What's going on? How are minds hijacked? This talk on the art of persuasion (rhetoric) was recorded on 3 June 2016, and references the following writers: Aristotle (Rhetoric), Kenneth Burke (The Rhetoric of Motives), and Paul Offit (Do You Believe in Magic? The Sense and Nonsense of Alternative Medicine).

Rank #16: 109 | A Murdered God and an Exiled Queen - 08 - Medianity

Podcast cover
Read more

In this Unorthodoxy series, we're embarking on a kind of philosophical criminal investigation. The case: God has been murdered (or so Nietzsche claims) and the so-called 'Queen of the Sciences' that we know as Theology has gone into exile. We're here to figure out, among other things, whether the fragmented theological messages and disconnected narratives in theological thinking today can find their home and ground in some kind of unity and coherence. We're hoping to locate some kind of explanation for why belief has become unfashionable and largely untenable in the world today. And in the end, the aim is to offer some sense of a Whole that is more than merely the arbitrary sum of a number of discombobulated parts.

In this episode, a few more questions are answered, which relate to (1) the story of this podcast, (2) the distinction between faith, hope and love, (3) if and how we can know about God, (4) how to grow using personality typologies like the enneagram, MBTI, big 5, etc. Useful books on the MBTI: Jung, 'Personality Types'; Quenk, 'Was That Really Me?' Then, Michael Pierce's MBTI typology chanel on YouTube is the best one I know of in terms of its depth and insights:
