Learning Magic and Animism in a Global Context -

Apr 10, 2019

This week, we welcome back to the show Dr Jeffrey Kripal to talk about his latest book, The Flip.

Dr Kripal holds the J. Newton Rayzor Chair in Philosophy and Religious Thought at Rice University and is the associate director of the Center for Theory and Research at Esalen.

The Flip is a fascinating exploration of what happens when hard scientists or medical professionals encounter something anomalous or out of place within their materialist framework and then... flip.

Along the way we talk models of mind, science's impact on mysticism, what the Humanities can do better, and feeling our way toward a much better understanding of the imagination.
