"Thanks.I'm sorry it has taken me almost a week to respond.  I just discovered that gmail is treating everything that comes from this site as spam.  I've fixed that. I'm afraid I'm not at all familiar with the Eastern…"

"Thank you.  I am very stimulated by the responses.  I may be able to start responding tomorrow evening, or it may be Saturday.  But I will respond, and appreciate the conversation."

Layman Pascal commented on David Miller's blog post An Integral Tropology of Saturation: The Interplay of Shownness and Givenness
"In this same section I pause over the phrase "undifferentiated whole".  I worry that this is phenomenologically misleading at that the sense of the undifferentiated wholeness is a kind of popular illusion arising after the…"

"One thing I've paused at a few times in the paper is the description of the Mirror Stage in Lacan.  Your phrasing suggests somewhat casually that the reflected image is interpolated as the result of adults pointing out and naming it. …"

"Hi David.  I appreciate the gesture.  My ideal welcome wagon might be a bit more of a chaotic dance than some others.  And I hope my sense that enriched and progressive theory should aim for a hybrid of cognitive & aesthetic,…"

"Okay, I'll give this a try, but I must say, if your first post was the welcome wagon, I'm not sure about this neighborhood. What excites me is that this provides an opening for developmental theory in contemporary phenomenology.…"

Layman Pascal commented on David Miller's blog post An Integral Tropology of Saturation: The Interplay of Shownness and Givenness
"David, the only insult is this -- your comment about my comment was woefully narrow, refusing to take advantage of the many openings it provided for further engaged discussion.  It was neither insult nor critique but preamble, invitation,…"

David Miller commented on David Miller's blog post An Integral Tropology of Saturation: The Interplay of Shownness and Givenness
"Layman, That seems not so much a critique as an insult.  This was an academic paper, and, as you have little respect for the style, I can't imagine we have anything to talk about. Thanks for the lack of interest."

Layman Pascal commented on David Miller's blog post An Integral Tropology of Saturation: The Interplay of Shownness and Givenness
"Hi David, This is an interesting confluence & conflagration of topics -- tossing Christian theology, phenomenology and Lacanian developmental psychoanalytics onto into a great heap using Gebser to set them on fire.  I dig the topics... but…"

An Integral Tropology of Saturation: The Interplay of Shownness and Givenness

Final%20Paper.docHere was my foray into including something Integral in an academic paper.  (Please forgive the typos I noticed when I re-read it just now.) Since then I've added Marion's re-interpretation of Aquinas's analogy of being, which re-interpretation builds on Heidegger's critique of Aquinas as enmeshing God in…See More

Hello

Before finding this forum for introductions and welcomes, I added a blog post introducing myself.  I'll add it here:Hi, I'm a United Methodist clergyperson, currently serving as chaplain and instructor at a United Methodist college.  I self-identify as a progressive Christian, largely because that is the most well known label referring to post-traditional Christianity. I also might describe myself around campus as a Christian, but not exclusively.  Less frequently, and primarily to those who…See More

David Miller replied to Balder's discussion Integral Religious Studies
"Thanks for the link. I have a couple of responses.  First, I notice that the article includes inerrancy in its treatment of pre-modern study of religion.  I think this is anachronistic.  Inerrancy did not arise until the period around…"

David Miller replied to Balder's discussion The New Monasticism
"Regarding tracing the horizon, Jean-Luc Marion describes a phenomenon's trace as leading beyond both Husserl's horizon of the object and Heidegger's horizon of being to a "place" of pure givenness (not to be confused with…"

Balder commented on David Miller's blog post Saying Hello
"Welcome, David!  It's nice to hear from you and to learn about the work and the inquiry you are doing, much of which sounds similar in spirit to topics we explore here.  I look forward to talking with you further."

Saying Hello

Hi, I'm a United Methodist clergyperson, currently serving as chaplain and instructor at a United Methodist college.  I self-identify as a progressive Christian, largely because that is the most well known label referring to post-traditional Christianity. I also might describe myself around campus as a Christian, but not exclusively.  Less frequently, and primarily to those who would already understand what I mean or to those who might almost understand, I echo Derrida's claim that I could…

Welcome to the Integral Postmetaphysical Spirituality forum, David!

Best wishes,

Balder

 
 
 
What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.

At the moment, this site is at full membership capacity and we are not admitting new members.  We are still getting new membership applications, however, so I am considering upgrading to the next level, which will allow for more members to join.  In the meantime, all discussions are open for viewing and we hope you will read and enjoy the content here.
