Metaphysical healers, metaphysical councilors, metaphysical vibrations … metaphysical this – metaphysical that. Everybody loves metaphysics. But what does this word really mean?
In this, second, part of series of podcasts on Aristotle’s metaphysics we proceed to explore book gamma of Metaphysics. It is a crucial treatise for understanding, not only Aristotle’s philosophy, but also it serves as a window in the world quite different than ours and notion of science diametrically opposed to what we today denote by this word.
This is introductory podcast in the series dealing with Aristotle's Metaphysics through close reading of it's fourth book (gamma). The aim is to show how ancient philosophy dealt with most immediate reality disclosed to us in experience, and how it proves to be utterly abundant with meaning and mystery. In this introduction we explore the origin and the meaning of the expression ta meta ta fysika and it's use in every day life, as well as some obstacles postmodern men have to face in approaching it.
Kali Tribune proudly presents series of podcasts on Rene Guenon and his notion of the end of the modern world. The podcasts are based on an essay "The Way the World Goes - Rene Guenon on The End" that was in effect an interpretation of the book "Reign of the Quantity and the Signs of the Times". However, this time around we'll attempt to go in depth into general Guenon's notions of metaphysics, myth, Tradition, civilization, religion, etc.
There's nothing like a bit of that old End Times predicting to pass a hot summer's day. Or so they say. Kali Tribune claims the better antidote to heat: cold beer and Rene Guenon's explanation of why the world has got to end neither with a bang nor whimper, but with a hell of a laugh.
