I watched much of the video. Thank you.
Some of the discussion was interesting, especially about the parts about
what becoming creative feels like and how ones work becomes part of and an
extension of oneself.
But there was an unreality about it all:
All the philosopher's were white males, I think. No blacks, no asians, no
The political economy that we all live in seemed to be outside of the
reality they discussed or was just part of it with no particular
They talked about many philosophers over time, but never Marx, never
Engels, etc. How can they leave such a large hole in their discussion?
They did not even explain why they might think them wrong.
They spoke and discussed like there were no social classes that we are
born into and must deal with. What class one is in has an enormous effect
on ones view of the world and ones sense of what is possible and what it
means to be creative in ones work.
I bet lots of corporate CEO's feel creative. Never mentioned. There
seemed to be only two levels, working with ones head and working with ones
hands and always acting as individuals. It is like no one ever organized
to do anything, which of course, manifestly part of human reality. Labor
struggles, wars, running governments, building global corporations.
People in power struggles. Not part of the reality considered.
