From the stables of the highly regarded Boneshaker Magazine, lead writer Jet McDonald will give an enlightening, multi-layered talk that applies philosophy to modern life using the experience of a ride and the components of a bicycle to illustrate it.
This talk is based on his book project, Mind Is the Ride (crowdfunding now) in which he uses the perspectives or ‘gears’ of philosophy to describe what goes on in the mind of a cyclist.
As Jet cycles from Bristol to the southern tip of India, each component of the bike fits together to make a kind of rolling jigsaw, from Western to Eastern philosophy. Western philosophy has long divided the mind and body into separate halves whilst Eastern philosophy offers a more integrated sense of self. Mind is the Ride is the journey from this ‘part’ sense of ourselves to a more whole understanding, embodied in the bicycle ride itself.
