Basic Notions of Metaphysics: On Being One and One Being

When someone says that being and one are convertible, what does this mean? In this podcast we'll explicate some of the distinctive qualities of this distinct indivisibility and undivided distinction. Also, we address the error of understanding explication of oneness as reduction to mathematical or physical unit, quite alien to traditional thought, and proneness of contemporary "back to origins" thinkers to perpetuating it especially when they're explicitly trying to refute it. We demonstrate how somewhat natural temptation to find one, indivisible and comprehensive historical point from which all the ills of our times can be explained is utterly in opposition to the One that transcends determinations and is the proper origin of time and what it brings forth.

The Science Sought For … on Aristotle and Problem of Metaphysics (pt.1 – introduction)

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.
