Aristotle thought they were born out of mud. A young Sigmund Freud dedicated himself to finding their testicles (spoiler alert, he failed). And a legendary Danish marine biologist spent 18 years and his wife's fortune sailing around the Atlantic Ocean to find their birthplace. The creature that tormented all of these great thinkers? It was the eel, perhaps the most mysterious fish in the world—and one of the most expensive per pound. So why are tiny, transparent, worm-like baby eels worth so much? Why have eels remained so mysterious, despite scientists' best efforts? And how has one pioneering farmer in Maine started raising eels sustainably, despite the species' endangered status? All that this episode, plus a nighttime fishing trip, suitcases full of cash, and a compelling argument that when it comes to the American Thanksgiving dinner plate, we should consider ditching the turkey—and replacing it with eel.

As Aristotle once said, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” It is no secret that the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem inspires countless artists using every medium imaginable to create masterpieces depicting what this landscape means to them. In Episode 08, we sit down with artist DG House in her studio in Bozeman, Montana. DG is a contemporary Indigenous painter and photographer who is best known for her boldly colored and beautifully rendered paintings of iconic Yellowstone wildlife. She is an artist-in-residence within both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.In the colorful front room of her studio, surrounded by house plants and stacks of books, we discussed the role of art in our ecosystem, artists as conduits for bringing the natural world to others, and learn how ice hockey played a role in how her name came to be. Voices of Greater Yellowstone was created by the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, a conservation nonprofit dedicated to working with people to protect the lands, waters, and wildlife of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, now and for future generations.The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is the land of 49+ Indigenous Tribes who maintain current and ancestral connections to the lands, waters, wildlife, plants, and more.> Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get podcasts.> Sign-up for our podcast supporter email list> DG House's Website> Support the podcast and give a gift to GYCPodcast Artwork > Rachel Dunlap ArtMusic >Redwood Trail by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...)Artist: http://audionautix.com/Support the show

Or has it existed from eternity past? If it DID have a beginning, this raises a question: Did the universe have a Creator? In PART 1 we explored this question scientifically. Now, let's look at it philosophically. Aristotle believed the universe was eternal in the past. But Al-Ghazali disagreed. He pointed out that if the universe did NOT have a beginning, then the number of past events in the history of the universe is infinite. But that's a problem because the existence of an actually infinite number of past events leads to absurdity! It's metaphysically impossible. Why?

They believe that mathematical relationships reflect real aspects of the physical world.

RECLAIMING AN ORDERED SOUL IN AN AGE OF DISTRACTION These past two decades, modern technology has brought into being scores of powerful challenges to our interior peace and well-being.

This book offers a calm, measured, yet forthright and effective approach to regaining interior peace.

This episode's guest is Sonali Chakravarti, Professor of Government at Wesleyan University. For three weeks in March and April of 2021, the process of jury selection for the trial of Derek Chauvin was live-streamed on CourtTV. We heard hesitations, nervousness, and expressions of feeling in response to questions about the viral video depicting George Floyd's death under the knee of Derek Chauvin. The open exploration of critiques of law enforcement and systemic racism during voir dire, jury selection, at the Chauvin trial is a sharp departure from previous cases where judges have been either hostile to critiques of the law or law enforcement or unsure about how to assess juror biases when they speak candidly about their perceptions of racial discrimination. In normalizing the language of the critique of law enforcement during jury selection, three important changes occurred: (1) the first was that Black jurors were less likely to be dismissed for opinions they have long voiced, but which had been seen as the basis for legitimate dismissal, (2) the second was that it clarified what the standard of impartiality should mean for the court in the current era given widespread scrutiny of the racial discrimination within and outside of the law. Lastly, (3) the topics covered during voir dire served to underscore the range of life experiences that are valuable for the jury's task of phronesis, Aristotle's term for practical wisdom, that must precede the verdict.

Wonder at the natural world has inspired people and fuelled curiosity for millennia. The ancient Greek Theophrastus had interests that spread far and wide, from biology and physics to ethics and metaphysics. But although he was Aristotle's friend and collaborator, and his notes on botany inspired Linnaeus, his name has mostly been forgotten. The writer Laura Beatty's new book, Looking for Theophrastus, aims to rescue him from obscurity. The scientist, Suzie Sheehy, still feels a childlike wonder at the way physics seems to be able to describe everything – from the smallest subatomic particle to the scale of the Universe. In The Matter of Everything: Twelve Experiments That Changed Our World, she looks back at the people who engineered ground-breaking experiments, and the human ingenuity, creativity and curiosity, as well as luck and serendipity that propelled them forward. While physicists attempt to describe and define the universe, the workings of the human mind still remain a challenge to scientists and philosophers. In The Book of Minds, the science writer Philip Ball looks at what we know about the minds of other creatures, from octopuses to chimpanzees, and of the workings of computers and alien intelligences. By understanding how minds differ, he argues, the better we can understand our own. Producer: Katy Hickman

A lecture with Q&A by Davenant Institute Vice-President, Colin Redemer, entitled "Old Aristotle, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Aquinas." Everyone knows that Aristotle left us a completed ethical system. What this lecture presupposes is, maybe he didn't? A close reading of Aristotle shows that his theory is constantly friscalating near the edge of completion, but that the author is self-aware of his system as flawed. In this lecture, Colin Redemer demonstrates Aristotle's self-aware shortcomings, before pivoting to see how Thomas Aquinas, in the first part of the second part, question 4, of the Summa Theologiae, responds to Aristotle's system of thought. The ways in which Aquinas' theory fulfills the dream of eudaimonia from Aristotle's ethical system will be revealed by shining the light of divine revelation upon it.

Episode 55 - In this episode, Michele unpacks what "Push Energy" means on the Twin Flame Journey. There's nothing worse than realizing that we may have inadvertently pushed our twin flame away and not being able to figure out why or how this happened. If there's such a strong pull to them - how is it that we can unknowingly push them away? If they are the same core vibration as we are - wouldn't they want to be with us? Let's look at the Law of Polarity. The opposite of push is pull. When we feel our twin flame pulling away - we push. When we feel the pull to them - we push. Both of these enforce this polarity and the concept of separateness and separation. When what we really want to do on the Twin Flame journey is to find balance and unity. Neither push nor pull - but harmony and the middle ground in the center. Aristotle describes this as the Golden Mean - "The Golden Mean or the Golden middle way is the desirable middle between two extremes." Most relationships can handle push and pull energy and there's usually a little of both that keeps the relationship exciting. Twin Flame relationships are different. Twin flames can only exist in the Golden Mean. Twin flames are a soul connection that is based in unity. Not polarity. Twin Flames ideally want to balance the push and pull, the Yin and Yang, the feminine and masculine - and align with unconditional love. When we push towards our Twin Flame - we are unconsciously saying - I desire you and therefore I need you to come to me. I need you to validate my feelings. I need you to let me know I'm safe and that you love me back. This energy repels them and pushes them away. Any needs, desires and conditions - pushes them away. These needs, desires and conditions are based in fear. Divine Feminine energy - no matter the gender - is not needy. The Divine Masculine can no longer take Wounded Feminine energy on. That old template is no longer working. We have to heal it. We have to heal our Wounded Feminine energy. To our Twin Flame - we are their Divine Partner. The vibration they recognize is one of the Divine Feminine - which is confident, flowing, creative, secure, and unconditional. When we push - we are carrying fear energy/Wounded Feminine energy - and they don't recognize us. They are giving us a gift by not buying into this energy. It's not real and it's based in fear.

Why do we say we have zero tolerance for bullying, but adult society is rife with it and it is an epidemic among children? Because the injuries that all forms of bullying and abuse do to brains are invisible. We ignore them, fail to heal them, and they become cyclical and systemic. In today's guest, Jennifer Fraser's book The Bullied Brain, readers learn about the evidence doctors, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists and neuroscientists have gathered, that shows the harm done by bullying and abuse to your brain, and how you can be empowered to protect yourself and all others. Jennifer Fraser  earned her PhD from University of Toronto in Comparative Literature. Her first book Rite of Passage in the Narratives of Dante and Joyce explores the way in which individuals transform from readers to writers of culture. Her second book Be A Good Soldier: Children's Grief in Modernist English Novels looks at pedagogical beliefs about children and the ways in which they fuel aggression and war. She has written three plays that focus on contemporary suffering: Distortion, Aristotle's Poetics, and Wakeful Sleeper. They're with the Playwright's Guild of Canada. Her third book Teaching Bullies takes lived experience with an abuse crisis and puts it into the context of psychology, psychiatry, education, law, and neuroscience. What's being discovered in neuroscientific labs across the world has the power to change how we understand our brains and lives. This empowering research infuses her latest book The Bullied Brain: Heal Your Scars and Restore Your Health. She also writes thrillers.

Nancy Sherman is an ethicist and professor of philosophy at Georgetown University with a focus on ancient Greek and Roman philosophy. She is an expert in ethics, the history of moral philosophy, moral psychology, military ethics, and emotions. In this episode, Nancy discusses her latest book, “Stoic Wisdom: Ancient Lessons for Modern Resilience.”    “To be resilient is to have stamina and persistence, but it's also to be sustained and supported in your endeavors.”   Key Takeaways [5:24] Stoicism naturally fits in the military because it's about sucking it up and being invincible. Nancy explains why she worries about this message. [6:40] Nancy thinks that rather than being invincible, stoicism is about understanding vulnerability and how anxiety is created by uncertainty. [8:05] Nancy explains what moral injury means and how it weighs heavily on different kinds of people. [9:30] Stoicism helps you think about how to cope in different situations and manage emotions and uncertain futures. [10:30] One of the factors in the growing popularity of stoicism is the interest in secular religion. Nancy expands on this further. [11:45] Other factors driving the fascination with stoicism are: Self-help is always a hot seller, people who are good at marketing use it as a niche, and Silicon Valley has an interest in it. [13:25] Nancy adds in a fifth factor which is about the Roman Philosophers. [14:35] Nancy thinks stoicism is not only about aestheticism. She explains what that means. [15:00] Post-traumatic stress vs. moral injury. Nancy shares what's their difference and how stoicism helps manage the latter. [17:20] Resilience vs. grit. Nancy shares her perspective on both. [18:30] Resilience is not self-reliance. She explains how. [21:20] Most studies of resilience suggest that strength does not come from inner toughness but from the ability to be open to receive help. [22:45] The Stoics were thinking of a community of humanity where we share reason, affective emotional judgment, and empathy. Nancy shares an example. [25:30] One of the commitments of stoicism is to expand outward as a member of an effective community. Nancy explains how we can learn from this to be better leaders. [26:50] Nancy talks about how stoics deal with implicit bias and the emotions that come with it. [29:50] Stoicism vs. neurobiology. Nancy shares that not all stoicism is worth saving in modern times and explains why. [32:10] Grace comes from the Greek word, Hara (Χάρις) which means charity. Nancy refers to some examples of goodwill from the stoics. [35:00] Nancy gives another example of mutuality in stoicism that explains her view further about grace. [36:30] Nancy also talks about self-empathy and how it's very important to be gentle to yourself. [39:30] Jan asks Nancy about ethics and morality and if there is a shortcut to master them. [49:20] Listener Challenge: Embracing stoicism within being emotionless and practicing communal resilience.   Quotable Quotes “I really worry deeply that the message being put out that you are bulletproof or invincible or you have to suck it up at all costs was dangerous.” “If you wanna go without organized religion, stoicism is a way to go.” “It's more about how you can face the challenges and sometimes, facing the challenges involves healing.” “To be resilient is to have stamina and persistence, but it's also to be sustained and supported in your endeavors.” “If you hit the pause button a little more, suspend judgment, and not give in or ascent to all those immediate ways we respond, we may have a better chance of engaging in discourse.”   Resources Mentioned Theleadershippodcast.com Sponsored by: Darley.com Nancysherman.com Nancy on LinkedIn Nancy on Twitter Grab Nancy's books: Stoic Wisdom: Ancient Lessons for Modern Resilience, Afterwar, The Untold War, Stoic Warriors, Making a Necessity of Virtue, Aristotle's Ethics, The Fabric of Character: Aristotle's Theory of Virtue

By Ben Light in Salem, OR - April 16, 2022 - The philosopher Aristotle coined the phrase, "Nature Abhors a Vacuum" after numerous experiments that seemed to illustrate that when all the air is taken out of an object, the pressure inside reduces to nearly zero. As a result, when the object is punctured, higher pressure air around the object rushes in to fill the empty space inside. During the Days of Unleavened Bread, we picture removing the sin from our lives, searching out and looking for every figurative crumb. If we do nothing further, something... anything will fill the holes. It is critical that we take in unleavened bread during the Days of Unleavened Bread, not just remove the leaven, but fill the holes that are left with something good and holy so that when these days are over, the same old habits, and same old sin doesn't find itself entrenched again.

Ep. 39 What is Justice with Marcel Guarnizo

The Moral Imagination

Play Episode Listen Later Apr 13, 2022 114:39


What is Justice?  What do we owe to each other? The theme of justice is core issue of all human societies and pervades myth and philosophy.  Plato's Republic and Gorgias are reflections on justice and the right ordering of the soul and society. So is Aristotle's Politics.  The Hebrew Bible, the Tao Te Ching, the Analects of Confucius, the writings of Buddhism, and the Stoics all contain reflections on justice.  C.S. Lewis notes in his appendix to the Abolition of Man that in every land and every culture there is a “Tao,” a way of being in the world that affirms what is good and condemns what is bad.  Despite the universal hungering for justice, injustice seems to be the way of man.  Against Plato stands Thrasymachus and Callicles, the tyrant and the sophist who want to reduce justice to power.   In this episode I speak with Marcel Gaurnizo about the nature of justice. We discuss the definition of justice — giving each what is due.  We discuss how justice is not simply a social or political condition but a human virtue that requires a consistent act of the will. Marcel explains how the shift from metaphysical view of justice to political justice opens the door to the dictatorship and tyranny of the majority or injustice through procedural methods. We discuss the Plato's story of the ring of Gyges which makes the wearer invisible just like Bilbo and Frodo in the Lord of the Rings — and thus free from any punishment. Would we have strength to do the right thing even if we would never get in trouble for doing what is wrong? As Marcel notes, the ring of Gyges is all around us.  There are many things that are legal—that we will not be punished for — but which are evil and unjust. Marcel also walks us through different species of justice — commutative (exchange) and distributive.  He explains how many of the errors we make about legal, economic, and social justice —both on the right and the left — often come from a misunderstanding of the difference between commutative and distributive justice, e.g. we apply commutative justice to the family. Marcel argues that one of the problems we have today on the right and left is that we are not formed in correct thinking about justice is that In this conversation there are some detailed discussions, but in a time where there the word “justice” is used so frequently and where there is so much confusion, I think it is very worthwhile. Some of the themes and thinkers we discuss include:  Justice as a virtue Economic justice of exchange Social Justice Family vs. Market Gary Becker and the error of applying commutative justice to the family John Rawls and the shift to political and procedural justice Socialist view of justice Marxism Philosophical Materialism Aristotle's Politics  Plato's Republic  St. Thomas Aquinas Treatise on Justice  Friedrich Nietzsche Monasteries Catholic Social Teaching John Rawls and the transformation of justice into political justice. Relativism Post-Modernism Human Nature — what kind of thing we are Individualism, the market, and the state Poverty and Distribution Biography Marcel Gaurnizo is a philosopher and theologian. He spent many years in Europe and has founded a number of institutions including an academy in Austria to teach philosophy, ethics, and politics, and was president of Aid to the Church in Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Today's program came to you live from Las Vegas, Nevada -where it is quite windy today--. Our first Road Trip DL in a while, but we won't be home for about three weeks, so, get used to it- Addressed some comments from Dan Wallace about the Father -forsaking- the Son on the cross -the old Psalm 22 quotation issue-, even looking at some textual critical issues related to the account in Mark. Then I addressed the issues that came up after the last DL relating to my exchange with Pastor Steve Meister and the whole philosophy-theology discussion going on in our day. We might be able to get a program in on Thursday, but it is a travel day, and it is more likely that we will be able to do one on Friday.
