I speak with Luke about being an autonomous self in an overabundance of memetic and mimetic opportunity, about choosing unchosen bonds again, the positives of mimesis given that it is inescapable, metaphysical boredom, expertise, identity, and much more.

Luke Burgis is Entrepreneur-in-Residence and Director of Programs at the Ciocca Center for Principled Entrepreneurship at The Catholic University of America in Washington

He is also the author of Wanting - The Power of Mimetic Desire In Everyday Life

His recommended subversive thinker (besides Rene Girard, of course) is Dietrich von Hildebrand.
