Essay | Eros, Evolution and Moving from Psychology Toward Soul-Making — Al Jeffery

Episode description and synopsis


In this episode, I read my most recent essay on “Eros, the Evolution of Life and Mind, and Moving from Psychology Toward Soul-Making.” This paper explores Eros (in its mythological and evolutionary sense) as a guiding organisational principle of life and invites us to tend to our connection to Eros as a partner in our renewal and re-engendering of relationship. 


Drawing on evolutionary biology, integral theory, attachment theory, theories of mind, developmental moral imagination, and more, I attempt to show how an Eros-(re)infused way of seeing and being might afford us great energy and direction in this time of fragmentation. 


Dive in, come to understand, and feel Eros in a renewed way. Let it animate your life and leadership. You can also download the paper here.
