Today’s episode is with Dr. Ryan Hanning, a husband, father, scholar, and homesteader. Ryan shares his insights on the connection between agriculture and personal integration, and how actively engaging with the earth has expanded his family's capacity to appreciate the beautiful. While Aquinas' definition of beauty is explained and other philosophical threads weave throughout the conversation, Ryan also offers some practical advice for how one can better position themselves so as to deepen their "taste" for that which sparks genuine desire and resolve.
