#72 - Brendan Graham Dempsey - A Meaningful Worldview Beyond Postmodernism
A conversation with Metamodern writer Brendan Graham Dempsey on getting past postmodernism
This week, I had an awe-inspiring conversation with Metamodern writer Brendan Graham Dempsey ( @BrendanGrahamDempsey ) on Post-modernism, Meaning, Meta-modernity and God. (See more of Brendan's work here or his substack here)
It’s a great honour to ring the death knell for Post-modernism. A French philosophy of cynicism and despair, which no one will miss except committed Nihilists. The next chapter of human philosophical endeavour looks much more promising, which we are discussing in this podcast!
