The Good Life Method: Reasoning Through the Big Questions of Happiness, Faith, and Meaning by Meghan Sullivan, Paul Blaschko Two Philosophers Ask and Answer the Big Questions About the Search for Faith and Happiness For seekers of all stripes, philosophy is timeless self-care. Notre Dame philosophy professors Meghan Sullivan and Paul Blaschko have reinvigorated this tradition in their wildly popular and influential undergraduate course “God and the Good Life,” in which they wrestle with the big questions about how to live and what makes life meaningful. Now they invite us into the classroom to work through issues like what justifies our beliefs, whether we should practice a religion and what sacrifices we should make for others—as well as to investigate what figures such as Aristotle, Plato, Marcus Aurelius, Iris Murdoch, and W. E. B. Du Bois have to say about how to live well. Sullivan and Blaschko do the timeless work of philosophy using real-world case studies that explore love, finance, truth, and more. In so doing, they push us to escape our own caves, ask stronger questions, explain our deepest goals, and wrestle with suffering, the nature of death, and the existence of God. Philosophers know that our “good life plan” is one that we as individuals need to be constantly and actively writing to achieve some meaningful control and sense of purpose even if the world keeps throwing surprises our way. For at least the past 2,500 years, philosophers have taught that goal-seeking is an essential part of what it is to be human—and crucially that we could find our own good life by asking better questions of ourselves and of one another. This virtue ethics approach resonates profoundly in our own moment. The Good Life Method is a winning guide to tackling the big questions of being human with the wisdom of the ages.

In this podcast, I talk with Dr. Flint McGlaughlin about marketing, which is something he knows quite a bit about. In fact, I've known about Flint and followed his work for over a decade now, so this was a treat for me. In case you're not familiar with him, Flint is an academic and business leader who served as the Director of Enterprise Research for Transforming Business at the University of Cambridge (UK) and is the founder of the MECLABS Institute, a marketing research institute dedicated to figuring out how people make choices and what influences those choices. Not only has Flint written and edited hundreds of articles and texts and won multiple awards, but he's patented ten offer conversion-related heuristics, conducted large-scale research projects in partnership with companies like The New York Times, Google, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Royal Bank of Canada, and has lectured at conferences and universities around the world, including New York University, Columbia University, Oxford University. He has also delivered keynote addresses for companies such as Cisco Systems Inc., Microsoft, and Google. To put it mildly, this guy knows his stuff, and as you'll hear in the interview, he's also an extremely interesting guy. In our conversation, he talks about . . . The concept of "metanoia" or changing one's mind Individuation and becoming who you really are How marketing is the essence of entrepreneurship Why the skill of marketing should be your priority if you want to go into business The blinding power of self-interest And a lot more . . . We also talk about his book, The Marketer as Philosopher, which condenses his findings from 25 years of investigating why people make certain choices and take action. I read the book before the interview, and I really enjoyed it. In fact, it was one of the more enlightening marketing books I've ever read, and I've read quite a few. So if you're interested in marketing or business, you definitely don't want to miss this interview. --- Timestamps: 0:00 - Pre-order my new fitness book now for a chance to win over $12,000 in splendid swag: https://www.muscleforlifebook.com/ 10:16 - Marketing and NFTs 13:02 - Instead of obsessing over doing the thing right, you have to do the right things 15:00 - Concept of individuation 18:41 - First principles approach 20:35 - What is a value proposition? 25:11 - Truth, beaty, and goodness are identical 26:09 - How do you spot “good”? 27:48 - What does “thriving” mean? 32:41 - How do you examine decision making and influence? 40:26 - What are the most destructive common entanglements? 53:45 - Your life is a message and you're the messenger 56:06 - People judge the person and whether they trust them in order to decide if they want the product 56:45 - What is the initial offering that creates trust? 1:00:04 - What is a brand? 1:02:29 - What do you mean by “individuation”? 1:17:34 - Why do you have to experience a conversion and be customer-centric to convince others in your marketing? --- Mentioned on the Show: Pre-order my new fitness book now for a chance to win over $12,000 in splendid swag: https://www.muscleforlifebook.com/ MECLABS Institute: https://meclabs.com/ The Marketer as Philosopher Book: https://map.flintmcglaughlin.com/

SRTN's visiting Philosopher, Jakub Ferencik is back! We first heard from Jakub in Episode 60. Since then, Jakub has written another book (!) entitled Beyond Reason: Why We Fail at Understanding Each Other.   Our discussion here ranged through many issues but focused on the primacy of reason as an arbiter of truth. Jakub and Ken engage in a lively conversation that is timely but steeped in the historical tradition, which they interrogate.   About Beyond Reason -   Why is it that everyone around us professes certainty amidst so much confusion, extremism, and polarization? Everyone has answers and yet so few questions are truly resolved. Academics debate endlessly, politicians manipulate desperately, and parents misguide in the same way that they were misled. In this book, Ferencik argues that the only way to come close to resolving our ideological battles is to assume that we are fallible; he claims that certainty is the enemy of progress. For much of history, dogma restricted the progress our ancestors hoped for. Today, we are similarly threatened by dogma. But in our case, we have tools we can work with to become more balanced, tolerant, and kind to those who disagree with us. If we are to truly aim at objectivity, we must read widely, disagree kindly, rethink voraciously, and move beyond reason.

Philosopher and author of Mental Immunity, Andy Norman, joins Jay to discuss the great infodemic of our time. He talks about cognitive immunology: how bad ideas can spread in the mind like parasites and bend your ideas in a way that does not serve your best interests. He believes standard approaches to critical thinking just aren't doing the job anymore but is hopeful that research into cognitive immunology will help. In a society lacking healthy debate, Andy discusses the value of being less reactive and more proactive. They discuss what a bad idea is, what makes it bad, and how belief ethics can give insight into these questions.  To get more from Andy, follow him on Twitter @DrAndyNo and visit cognitiveimmunology.net.  To get tickets for the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference on January 16 and 17th, visit cambridgehouse.com.   Join our investment community and sign up for our free weekly newsletter at cambridgehouse.com.

In making important decisions in your life, do you listen to your heart or rely upon what your mind says? The answer may differ from one person to another. Some will say that they always follow what their heart wants. Others rely on their minds in making logical decisions. But why not use both? Why not open both your hearts and minds when making choices? How can we tap into this state that goes beyond our thinking?

**We're currently on a brief vacation and will return in early 2022, but wanted to replay some of our favorite episodes and interviews from this past year** Hope you enjoy! In the final episode of our series exploring what Critical Race Theory (CRT) is, we speak with author, mathematician, and political commentator, Dr. James Lindsay. James has written six books spanning a range of subjects including religion, the philosophy of science and postmodern theory. He is the founder of New Discourses and currently promoting his new book "Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity―and Why This Harms Everybody." Dr. Lindsay offers a viewpoint and opinion on Critical Race Theory that differs from the previous two guests in this series. While many believe that CRT is a legal framework by which to view the racial disparity among minorities, Dr. Lindsay argues that this is a dangerous, and racist, theory that undermines the progress and the vision of the Civil Rights Movement. If you are interested in hearing a counter argument to CRT, Dr. Lindsay provides a well informed and well researched view that you are unlikely to hear anywhere else.

(12/13/21) As we being to emerge from the pandemic, other crises move center stage—outrageous inequality, climate disaster, desperate refugees, mounting tensions of a new cold war. The abiding motif of our time appears to be relentless chaos. Acknowledging the possibilities for new beginnings at moments of catastrophe, Mao Zedong famously proclaimed “There is great disorder under heaven; the situation is excellent.” As Slovenian philosopher and international director of the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities of the University of London Slavoj Žižek examines in his new book Heaven In Disorder, the modern relevance of Mao's observation depends on whether today's catastrophes can be a catalyst for progress or have passed over into something terrible and irretrievable.

In this interview, we discuss Kacem's reading habits, what inspires him in the world of thought, how he derived his philosophical concepts, what qualifies as truly radical in our age and why he broke up with his former mentor Alain Badiou. Kacem is, similar to Giorgio Agamben, a major critic of the way the ruling class is managing the pandemic and he is not shy to share his views. In this wide-ranging conversation, we catch a glimpse of a deeply inventive and creative mind and we get advice for how to do philosophy outside of conventional institutions.   This interview was conducted on Thursday December 9th, 2021, by Daniel Tutt.
