"paul satra" Discussed on My Ghost in the Machine | Philosophy Podcast

"Is there a difference between a person's sex and their gender. I mean wiser so much. Confusion disagreement and just overall conflict in the general western imagination. When it comes to this particular topic. Why do we see so many different public figures pretty much say completely different and even oftentimes mutually exclusive things about the relationship between our sexes and our gender and well the narrative of outta mehta offers us an interesting way for which we can both explore and better understand the philosophical origins of this particular debate. So what i want us to do. In this episode issues the narrative of neuron omega in order to help us better contextualized the whole sex versus gender debate into its proper historical context and i feel fine so the topic of gender gender roles and the relationship between a person's sex and whether they are a woman a man or whatever is explored in your tomato through the amusement park boss and though amusement park boss just happens to be named after one of the main architects of modern philosophical feminism namely all debevoise and it's important to mention the of started off her career as an existentialist philosopher and only later started writing about philosophical feminism gender scripts and so forth. And because she started off as an existentialist philosopher her philosophical ideas are not only deeply grounded in existentialist philosophy but her philosophical ideas are also deeply grounded in die ideas of one. Very specific existentialist philosopher namely jean-paul saw tra who in your automated is portrayed as this arrogant narcissistic and just generally obnoxious machine and saw tre in real life wasn't the only one of the avars closest friends companions and so on but he also remained one of her main romantic partners throughout most of her life and as such given their close proximity to each other issue. Come as little to no surprise that the two ended up significantly influencing each other's ideas and overall philosophies and one of the main ideas which of are borrowed from satra and later used as the foundation of our own feminist philosophy is the proposition that our existence precedes our essence. You know i you're physically born and then after you're physically born you develop your inner essence ideas personality and so forth and not the other way around. I mean up until relatively recently the dominant idea in western intellectual culture was that a person's inner essence was the byproduct of some type of non-physical stuff which presumably existed or was presumably formed prior to that person's physical birth. So what south did is to essentially flip this traditional idea on its head and argue that again i were born. And then after we're born we get to build and develop our inner essence as a byproduct of our live physical experiences and this is an idea which pretty much still thoroughly dominates the western imagination. To this day. I mean for example propositions like you are the product of the family. You were brought up in or things like you are the product of your environment or you are the product of your circumstances or you a product of your developmental years and so forth. All of these popular tropes are essentially different takes on the whole south in existence precedes essence proposition. And the way all of this is related to simone. The beauvoir's feminist philosophy and the whole sex versus gender debate. Is that simone. Took this idea. The idea that existence precedes essence and redirected towards the topic of gender. I mean she pretty much transformed south ras proposition into what has now become one of the core pillars of modern feminism namely the idea that one is not born but one becomes a woman and idea here is really that according to lavar gender roles things like being a man or things like being a woman and so forth ultimately amount to a type of culturally conditioned social performance. You see in her view as we gradually become socialized by our families our societies our educational systems and so forth. We suddenly become persuaded to act in all sorts of ways which would otherwise be unnatural to us. I mean from the moment we're born. We essentially have other people telling us how to behave or how to speak or how to conduct ourselves how to address how to think and ultimately how to be in the world. But here's the thing what debevoise realized is that social performances are not thor. Given phenomena in other words gender roles zones dropped out of the sky gender roles according to of war are things that we ourselves as a culture build and develop over time and as such as culturally conditioned phenomena gender roles are hence malleable things. i mean obviously. Different cultures and different societies will generate entirely different gender scripts. After all what it meant to be a men or what it meant to be a woman in ancient china isn't the same thing as being a man or a woman in western society today and this is the main reason why neuron omega you meet. See mall in the theater hall namely place of performances. I mean even though simone supposed to be a sexist machine in europe omega is still nevertheless went ahead and appropriate for itself the traditional gender role of a woman simos not only dressed in what we would normally refer to traditional western woman clothing. A skirt corset and so forth but simone has also appropriate for herself the traditional sociological and psychological goals of a woman indeed she internalizes social performance of traditional western woman to the point that pretty much all of our lives objectives became centered around securing the romantic affection of one particular machine namely paul. And of course. This is an indirect jab at the whole romantic relationship which took place between the real simone. They've evolved and the real john. Paul satra but in europe omega jean-paul. Who again is depicted as this arrogant. Narcissistic machine does not reciprocate. Simone's love so confused by all of this. Simone who again is deeply immersed and invested in the social performance of traditional western woman interprets. Jean paul's rejection as her. Having failed to become sufficiently beautiful to deserve is romantic attention and this is interesting because what yotaro. The director of neural made is trying to show here. Is that when we appropriate a social performance. We start to see everything around us including our goals failures successes and so forth through the lenses of that particular social performance. And this is why seem all the machine eremita becomes so enormously invested in making herself. Look ever the more beautiful. By having appropriated the gender performance of traditional western woman. sima began processing jumbles rejection.

"All right disagreeing commit this. This episode is inspired by a recent conversation. I had with legendary technology executive a Lisa Steele on episode one twenty nine failure different and on the episode one one of Things Lisa touches on is the power of being able to disagree and commit now as a marketing leader. CMO Or frankly CEO or executive any kind On big decisions we get a lot of help and for some reason in marketing we get a lot of and I put help here in. Air quotes Even more help than I think. A lot of other department department leaders or Group leaders in business get and so I think debate and discussion and disagreement are good things. When we're we're working on strategies or creative ideas or new campaign ideas or for trying to design a category etc and so I think debate discussion and agree? A disagreement disagreement are good. Here's what I think is bad consensus because what I've learned is if everybody agreed by definition the decision probably probably sucks. If someone is scared maybe even little upset or at least a little concerned. The decision we've just made is probably not a legendary everyone and so if you understand this How do you get in front of it from the very first meeting when you're working on a new initiative in marketing tell people well number one we want to do something legendary here number to China Jim generate as many legendary ideas and creative strategies as possible in the beginning? When we're we're in the you know what the consultants call the quote unquote idea stage And number three when we finally decide we're going to lock and load and we're going to execute like my friend marketing assassin. Rick Bennett says like a pack of speed crazed wolverines and so I think it's essential to lay that foundation on Dacian upfront in the first meeting and And understand as we go forward and frankly tell people this that some people Maybe potentially even board members of the company or senior executives will not like the strategic decision that we make and that's okay let everybody know from the beginning. It's fine nine and here's what they also need to know. We are not aiming for consensus. Were amazing legendary results so from the start of the project let everybody know a who the decider is in business. It's great to get feedback. It's great to get input. It's great to consider ideas but most businesses says are not democracies and so making it clear who the sole decider is you know typically in marketing it's the CMO sometimes of course it's a CEO but make that very clear. Second set the expectation that we expect even if you violently disagree with the decision that we make that everybody audie on the team is going to commit an that might mean disagreeing commit even if you hate it and you know I want to share share with you a story about this I was involved with a major strategic category design initiative a little while ago and it was uh the future of the company was really at stake and it was a multi multi month process that included the board the senior executive team of course the marketing team team senior sales leaders senior product leaders etc.. And as we were going through this one of the major leaders in marketing decided that he did not like the kind of leading candidate idea for the new category that was emerging and he even brought forth a competing heating idea and tried to sort of UNHOOK the decision. That was in the process of being made which frankly I think is fair game. If you have a competing idea that you think is better. I think you should stand up and talk about that anyway. Here's what happened over time This marketing leaders counter idea was not chosen and The idea that was sort of in play from the beginning ended up becoming the idea. I thought this guy was probably going to have to get fired. Given how much he disagreed with the idea for the new category that had been decided and this guy did something I have rarely seen in my career. He did did what you could think of as a complete stop change. Start and the minute. The decision was taken. He got on board and he executed like a pack of speed crazed Wahlberg Wolverines and later on through the process as the execution was going forward. I pulled this guy set aside and I said you know I'm incredibly impressed. Most people who disagree as much as you do can't get on board with the decision that they disagreed with and we had a powerful conversation around why he thought it was important essentially to disagree and commit and once the decision was made he got over it and got on with it and I think that's incredibly powerful and I think it's an important skill and one that I've always tried to get behind. There have been points in my career where I disagreed and I wanted the world to think I think even if I hated the idea if this was the idea that was being committed to that I I loved it and I was on board from the get-go and I think that's what legendary leaders do do and I think it's especially important marketing. Where big marketing decisions tend to get a lot of visibility train? Everybody coach everybody condition. Everybody that that we are going to WE'RE GONNA launch. We're going to get aggressive. We're going to execute an order to do that. People are going to disagree and part of being legendary marketing leader.
