Metamodernism, the Nordic Secret and the integral community

Hanzi Freinacht is the author of “The Listening Society” and “Nordic Ideology”, now writing the commentary on world history, “The 6 Hidden Patterns of History”. The whole series is expected to be six books, covering the economy “Outcompeting Capitalism”, ethics “Fractal Ethics” and law (legal theory), “Against the Law” — all of which attempt to give a metamodern perspective on the topics.

“Metamodern” is another suggested term for “what comes after postmodern”, and it originated in art theory and the humanities. Hanzi represents the Nordic school of metamodernism, which draws closer to integral theory and stage theories of adult development. But Hanzi’s metamodernism does not stop at presenting a theory; it presents a plan-of-action for politically transforming society.

This talk is specifically designed for the integral community and it has three phases:

* Tough love — the opening part, critiquing integral and explaining a bit about the metamodern turn.
* Care and vulnerability — the middle part, relating to the pain of the community, shared by metamodernists and integralists alike.
* A call to fellowship — landing in a path for joint venture and mutual growth from integral and metamodern strands.

About Hanzi Freinacht:

Hanzi Freinacht resides in the French-speaking part of the Swiss Alps, living alone in a big house, a quiet and contemplative life, but one driven by a tempered fiery zeal for revolution.

Hanzi is born at the crossroads of fact and fiction, part scholar, part guru, part joker, part revolutionary activist, part calm reformist. He lives and breathes between and beyond the disciplines, a thousand voices crisscrossing in his mind, oscillating between tormented confusion and blissful clarity.
