    Inner Experience - Carl Rogers: Grief, Therapy, and Global Crisis

    Inner Experience - Carl Rogers: Grief, Therapy, and Global Crisis

    On this episode of Inner Experience we welcome in 2022 with our friend Chuck LeBlanc, a psychotherapist based in Canada and host of the Couch to Couch podcast, to talk about his therapeutic practice. Chuck takes us through his influences from the Positive Psychologist Carl Rogers to Gilles Deleuze and Alfred North Whitehead, and explains the methods of an inclusive and empathetic therapeutic approach as well as how the pandemic has impacted how people receive and relate to their own therapeutic as well as everyday experiences. Later on in the episode, we talk to Chuck about his current project on the experience of grief. Together, we examine the structure of grief in the economy of loss, and its repression predominantly in male contexts, as we consider grieving in a variety of concepts; from the loss of a loved one to the loss of a sense of one’s world as well as the grief that comes from the loss of a political future.

    So You Want To Study Philosophy?: A Discussion With Tyrique

    So You Want To Study Philosophy?: A Discussion With Tyrique

    On this episode, we are joined by listener and philosophy student Rique to discuss his academic experience. We follow Rique through his intellectual and personal development as a student of philosophy. He discusses the importance of the relationships he’s developed with faculty and the process of applying to graduate programs. Also on the docket for this discussion are student life in philosophy and the changing nature of education under contemporary neoliberalism. How can this pressure create a form of solidarity between students and educators? What are some ways to counter the forces of “specialization”? What are some strategies to reduce this stress? How can pedagogy itself become an element in resistance? So, consider pushing aside the notebook or statement of intent for a bit and tuning into this conversation!

    Spinoza, Marx, and the Great Resignation: A Conversation with Jason Read and Acid Horizon

    Spinoza, Marx, and the Great Resignation: A Conversation with Jason Read and Acid Horizon

    On this episode of Acid Horizon we are joined by Jason Read, a professor of philosophy at the University of Southern Maine, to discuss one of his essays on Spinoza and Marx. The title is 'The Order and Connection of Ideology Is the Same as the Order and Connection of Exploitation', and will appear in his forthcoming book Double Shift. In it, Read assesses two contemporary French theorists, Frédéric Lordon and Yves Citton, who in their own writings explore the ways in which Spinoza can enrich our understanding of Capitalism. Along the way, we discuss the history of French Spinozism, COVID and the Great Resignation, capitalist myth-building, desire and ideology, and the legacy of Louis Althusser.

    Felix Guattari in Japan - 'Machinic Eros' with Gary Genosko

    Felix Guattari in Japan - 'Machinic Eros' with Gary Genosko

    On this episode of Acid Horizon, we're joined by Professor Gary Genosko to discuss essays from Machinic Eros, a collection of Felix Guattari's writings and interviews from this cultural exchange trips to Japan. We explore notions of machinic value and machinic enslavement, as well as control societies and Guattari's enthusiasm for the Free Radio Movement. We also go into some of Guattari's conversations with figures from the Japanese Avant-Garde, such as the dancer and performance artist Min Tanaka, as well as dissecting Guattari's invocations of bygone icons of Japanese architecture, which have since evaporated in the flows of capitalist desire.

    Answers Without Organs - Acid Horizon's Third Q&A

    Fresh back from a brief hiatus last month, the Acid Horizon crew kick things off with the latest edition of Answers without Organs. In this episode Craig, Will, Matt, and Adam answer queries from patrons and twitter followers on such topics as: the use of psychoanalysis in political thought today, the meaning of philosophizing, getting critical theory work out there, Hardt and Negri on the Multitude and Digitalization, Plato's greatest hits, Nietzsche's interpreters, and the fundamental question of political philosophy; why do people fight for their servitude as if it were their salvation?  — Also in the works is our upcoming collaboration with Zer0 Books on our new series "Zer0 Books Archives" where we go through some of our favourite hidden gems of the Zer0 catalogue. We hope you'll enjoy them in the coming months!

    Demos, Kratos, Autos, Nomos: A Fragmentary Expenditure

    Demos, Kratos, Autos, Nomos: A Fragmentary Expenditure

    In this short episode, Adam reads his text "Demos, Kratos, Autos, Nomos: A Fragmentary Expenditure" in which he ruminates on the etymological origins of democracy, law, and of the power of people, distinct from its reification as 'The People', which grounds the notion of representative political institutions. Adam invites us to consider the distinction between the power of people vs a People's Law, in light of notions of identity, ecstasy, discipline, and transgression.
