    In this episode, Richard introduces the Spinoza Triad to Mark Fisher's ideas and Capitalist Realism's ideas. Our discussion focuses on his and our experiences in education. We consider the state of British society, and the all-pervasive nature of capitalism and wonder if it is possible to imagine a different kind of world or would this be harder than imagining the end of the world.

    In this episode John  and Richard discuss a text which was referred to in an earlier podcast. 'De Rerum Natura'  -  'On the Nature of Things'. On of the most remarkable books ever written, On the Nature of Things' by the Roman author Lucretius was an influence on many of the greatest thinkers and artists in the last 2000 years. It was written in the first century BCE by a wealthy Roman as a means of explaining the philosophy of Epicurus to his fellow Romans and in poetic form it contains ideas which are startlingly modern and  as exciting to a modern reader as they were to his contemporaries. In this episode I explain my admiration for this book to Richard.
