Community: And Other Positive Disillusionments

Here is a video of a talk I did at the People’s Philosophy Colloquium in Portland, Oregon. They are an awesome group, go check em out!

The talk is about a trend I have noticed about how community is being held up as an answer to some of the toughest social and existential challenges we face. I dove deep into social theory, psychology and personal reflection to break down what problem we are identifying, how community is being conceptualized and how this contributes to the actual experiences we have in community.

Enjoy!


Here is the link to the School of Life youtube video on the History of Monasticism


And here are the slides I used- a little out of order 🙂
