Podcast offerings are three types. “Current issue” podcasts address critical contemporary concerns from a culturally mature perspective. Think of this section as a antidote to today’s extreme partisan polarization and a response to the need for more creative and sophisticated leadership going forward. Each podcast illustrates how we must engage critical issues from a vantage that is more encompassing—more systemic—than we have in times past. It also illustrates how, when we are able to do so, needed answers become straightforward, part of a needed “new common sense.”show more
Podcasts in the “Cultural Maturity” section offer overarching perspective for making sense of what our times ask of us. They are adapted from a twelve article series I recently wrote for the World Future Society. They provide a solid introductory look at the concept of Cultural Maturity—both its implications and the evidence for its conclusions.
Podcasts in the “Big Picture” section are more specifically conceptual. They address culturally mature understanding’s significance in the larger history of ideas and elucidate key ideas from Creative Systems Theory. In time, I will include chapters from the book I am currently working on Creative Systems Theory: A Comprehensive Theory of Purpose, Change, and Interrelationship in Human Systems (With Particular Pertinence to Understanding the Times In which We Live). (The book brings together observations from forty years of work with the theory.)
This set of podcasts responds to current social/political discord by addressing front-page issues from above the partisan fray.
