136. Cadell Last: The negative principle, libidinal economy and the physiology of perspectives

Cadell Last is a philosopher exploring the curiosities of humanity. You can find out more about him at his webpage, his youtube channel. If you're listening to this in summer of 2022 he's also launching an online course on Thus spoke Zarathustra (Philosophy portal). This conversation is a walk though of the negative principle where we explore what it and our blindness to it has to tell us about what we see in the world today. We also slip into the topic of the libidinal economy - that our sexuality seeps into our economies, both those aspects we desire and what we try to not look at. It is an exercise of grounding philosophy and looking at how the big ideas move us in the world. We also touch on the masculine and the feminine and what possibility an integrated negative holds for those energies. Enjoy!
