What It Means To Be Post-Cartesian

How is it that we have come to think of ourselves primarily as isolated/self-interested individuals?

I will reflect on Charles Eisenstein’s notion of  ‘The Story of Separation’ and how we have become alienated from nature and from others in my next post.

However, I wanted to reblog this post from “The Chrysalis – LongsWorde blog” because it dives into some of the philosophical ideas underpinning our modern consumeristic society.

It provides some helpful context to tie in some of my writings on the issues we face in modernity.

  1. You know I only recently I found out that “metaphysics“ means “after physics”. And it was a name that some philosopher looking at Aristotle a few centuries after Aristotle, decided that certain portions of Aristotle’s works should be called “after” whatever works, I think it’s because they were at the end of each of the discussions.


      1. That is an excellent essay video. I am going to post a link to it. Thank you very much. I think you very much might enjoy the essay that I just published in the Journal of counseling and family therapy.
