Nietzsche, Wokeism, Non-Buddhist Mysticism
A Discussion with Glenn Wallis
NEW BOOKS NETWORK 2023
What does it mean to be a hundred? Perhaps Friedrich Nietzsche would know. He’s in part the star of the show. Along with regular guest Glenn Wallis. We look at the ideal reader, the ideal thinker, and perhaps the ideal practitioner. We discuss his work in progress, Nietzsche NOW! A book that wonders what Nietzsche would have to say about Wokeism. We also discuss the podcast on its 100th birthday and I get asked a question or two to celebrate. Come along for a slice of Nietzschean cake and topical takes on another of Glenn’s works, Non-Buddhist Mysticism.
What is a podcast in 2023? Everyone’s got one apparently. Which means the whole craze will no doubt come to a timely end soon. Then what? The reinvigoration of quality journalism, or just a slow chug on into a future of ever too much to listen to, think about, care about, bother with? Who knows.
This podcast will continue as it started; navigating terrain somewhere between intelligent practice, informed discussion, critique where needed, and humanity where it can be found.
Do join us for more if that suits you too.
We remain at New Books Network, on itunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts and possibly elsewhere.
Thank you for listening.
