My Personal Philosophy

Robert’s personal approach to business stems from his belief that Western society’s reliance on the hero’s journey as a useful conceptual metaphor for personal and societal transformation is outdated (and harmful). His doctoral research focuses on (re)discovering ways to conceptualize personal and societal transformation that invite diverse perspectives.

Does the world really need any more heroes? Is technology the only way for us to advance as a civilization? Is ‘advancement’ necessarily sustainable in a postmodern world in which truth and reality are understood as individually shaped by personal history, social class, gender, culture, and religion?

In applying an ecological sensibility to his work, Robert does not offer answers to any problem. Rather, he invites others to question themselves and the way(s) in which they have come to define the ‘problems.’
