246 | The Lacking

By Joshua Fields Millburn, Ryan Nicodemus

Joshua and Ryan discuss the fear of missing out (FOMO), the joy of missing out (JOMO), and how to be content in the midst of uncertainty with author, theologian, and philosopher Peter Rollins, and they answer the following questions: What is ‘the lack’? (03:51) What is the difference between freedom and determinism? (04:58) What are hypothetical and categorical imperatives? (06:27) Can too much freedom cause anxiety? (11:52) How do I find satisfaction with my current situation rather than constantly searching for something new? (13:40) What is the difference between desire and drive? (15:50) Why do most of us seem to crave change? (23:12) What is the burden of freedom? (24:20) What is the ‘lack of the secret’ compared to the ‘secret of the lack’? (27:37) How can I curb my constant desire for new things? (32:09) Is our desire for the new related to our past? (33:46) What is guilt?
