Dr. Joseph Dowd is a philosophy instructor at California State University San Bernardino. He will teach us Logic-Based Therapy and address the Need for Progressives to Reclaim Self-Improvement.
Dr. Dowd is licensed by the National Philosophical Counseling Association (NPCA) as a philosophical consultant. A philosophical consultant is basically a therapist who uses philosophical reasoning to address emotional problems. He is trained in "Logic-Based Therapy" or "LBT." In this presentation, He will explain LBT and how you can use it in your own life without needing to visit a philosophical consultant. LBT is especially useful for people interested in politics. It helps to defuse anger, defensiveness, and other emotions that can cause political dialogue to degenerate into a shouting match.
With his focus on Asian philosophy, Dr. Dowd is concerned that many left-wing intellectuals have turned against the self-help and wellness industries. "Left-wing intellectuals make good points when they criticize the self-help and wellness industries," he says. "However, by abandoning self-help and wellness, the left creates a void that's being filled by right-wing intellectuals" and people like Jordan Peterson.
