Radio Lear Podcast 004 – Regenerations
In this episode of the Radio Lear podcast, Max Sturm Explores the Enantiodromatic nature of the potential Transcendent Social Futures. In the fast-paced world of technology and ever-evolving societies, it is crucial to explore the tensions and oppositions that shape our lives. Let’s embark on a journey together to imagine a social future that draws inspiration from Carl Jung’s concept of enantiodromia. And let’s do this through music.
In this podcast, we are going to delve into the opening moments of our quest to find a transcendent form of expression that harmonise opposing forces like nature and technology, history and psychology, and culture and dogmatism.
The enantiodromatic principle, as proposed by Carl Jung, suggests that the transformation of one extreme inevitably gives rise to its opposite. Jung was a visionary who perceived the need to hold the tension of these opposites, recognizing that the interplay between them is a wellspring of creative potential. Like Jung, we believe that by embracing this concept, we can envision a future that transcends the limitations imposed by rigid dichotomies.
As you listen to these tracks, think about this tension, but don’t try to resolve anything. This is not a Hegelian dialectic in conflict. These cannot be resolved, only outgrown.
