Into a New World | with Chris Mastropietro
I sat down with Christopher Mastropietro, a trained philosopher who has been working with John Vervaeke on various projects. They wrote a book together called ‘Zombies in Western Culture: A Twenty-First Century Crisis’ and Chris is currently helping John to turn his Meaning Crisis lecture series into a book.
In our conversation we discuss how these ideas about symbolism in a postmodern world are changing our culture, what the new world will look like and what it takes to get there. We also talk more generally about growth and repentance, breakdown, grace, academia VS this online world, our upcoming projects, and the process of doing creative work.
