Events for the Week: Living Amongst Intersubjective Entities and the Collapse of Complex Societies
Dear beautiful people,
I will be returning to my philosophy practice in November. I will only be working with a select amount of people (around 6) at a time. A series of announcements will begin starting on November 9th.
Here are the events for the week:
The Trolls Under the Bridge: Intersubjective Parasitology, Computational Demonology, and Things That Go BUMP in the Dark Night of the Soul w/ Evan McMullen. October 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st @ 6:00 PM ET. RSVP here.
Evan’s Philosopher-in-Residence series at The Stoa continues tomorrow. This series explores what Evan calls “intersubjective parasites” (demons, egregores, etc.) that haunt our social fields. For the last session, Evan will reveal practices and perspectives for living in an intersubjective ecosystem where humans aren’t apex predators. It also happens to be on Halloween, so feel free to dress up. 🎃
The Collapse of Complex Societies w/ Joseph Tainter. November 2nd @ 6:00 PM ET. RSVP here.
Joseph A. Tainter will be visiting us to discuss his book, The Collapse of Complex Societies. From the book …
Any explanation of political collapse carries lessons not just for the study of ancient societies, but for the members of all complex societies in both the present and future. Dr Tainter describes nearly two dozen cases of collapse and reviews more than 2000 years of explanations. He then develops a new and far-reaching theory that accounts for collapse among diverse kinds of societies, evaluating his model and clarifying the processes of disintegration by detailed studies of the Roman, Mayan and Chacoan collapses.
Here is what is happening at The Stoa’s wisdom gym this week:
Collective Journaling. Monday to Friday. @ 8:00 AM ET. Patreon event. 90 mins.
