In this hour and a half program, recorded live on the air, Sam Keen shares his personal “beginnings,” and in the process brings philosophy, religion, and the personal growth movement together as a whole. Starting with patterns seen by Freud, Nietche, Dostoyevsky, and others, he traces the declining view of the universe as rational, predictable, and moral, through the 20th century and what he describes as the “mythological event” of the energy crisis, pointing to the decline of American system of control, progress, and profit. He shares about the significant affect the media, government, and other institutions have on our lives, and the hope that these institutions can begin to humanize their relationships with those they serve. This interview from over 40 years ago is very relevant to our lives today. (hosted by Michael Toms and Will Noffke)
