    49 - ”It Takes a Long Time For a Personality to Form, and a Long Time to Change It” (feat Philip Herschenfeld)

    49 - ”It Takes a Long Time For a Personality to Form, and a Long Time to Change It” (feat Philip Herschenfeld)

    Dr. Philip Herschenfeld is a psychiatrist based in New York. I try to stump him with some YouTube-gleaned Hegel before we move onto a far-reaching discussion of psychoanalysis, personality, the 1979 film "Breaking Away" and much much more. 


    Philip appears regularly on The David Feldman show and I highly recommend checking him out there as well.


    Follow the show @PodRule and feel free to reach out in any of the sacred or ancient languages. Leave us a review on Apple podcasts in Sumerian - reviews written in Sumerian really help grow the pod!


    Much Love!
