Join James Landes, Ph.D., on Wholly Orders (whollyorders.com), for a philosophical and poetic exploration of the Western canon and tradition. This program supports a wholeness of the true, the good, and the beautiful, centered on Christianity and the Western intellectual canon and tradition, argued principally by means and use of philosophy, poetry, and cultural criticism. (Returning from hiatus in early 2020.)
The Contemplative Life & the Cultivation of Virtue
On the importance of contemplation and the cultivation of virtue in an age that encourages neither. And how this relates to tradition and the canon.
A Canon, If You Can Keep It
We cannot deny the radical secularism with which we are surrounded. But we should defy it.
Against the Dictatorship of Relativism
Relativism is not "freedom," but quickly descends instead into tyranny and barbarism.
Lazarus (Faith & Philosophy)
We must choose between faith and the world, but this is not to be mistaken as a choice between faith and philosophy. Not at all.
Welcome to Wholly Orders
Greetings and welcome to Wholly Orders, a poetic and philosophical exploration of tradition.
Having left my days of grad school behind many years ago, I have wondered if I am losing perspective and assuming dominant ideologies, illusions, and perspectives. Thank you for rousing my thoughts! This podcast has been a comfort-food for thought!
Thank you for broadening my horizons, sometimes we are caught up on our hamster wheels and forget about our history and those neglected throughout. Love your wisdom and good luck with your project(s)!
I was enthralled with Jim's first podcast episode, Message in a Bottle, and do plan on listening to the many more to come.
