#80 “The Way of the Inferior Man”: Part 2 with Chris Ryan

Christopher Ryan

Chris Ryan returns to the podcast to elaborate on an episode he recorded for Tangentially Speaking, regarding “The Way of the Superior Man” by David Deida. We were both a little shocked at how much we disliked this book, especially given how many people had recommended it to us. We share our own opinions about healthy masculine & feminine expression/integration, and why we think this book reads more like a parenting book than a guide to healthy & evolved relationships. We discuss our thoughts on how to maintain
eroticism in relationships, why growth isn’t always comfortable and why “othering” your

partner is never a good strategy for “enlightenment” nor self-awareness.
