Episode 25: 3 Ways Technology Is Destroying Your Life

In this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, John and Sam meet with Josh Hochschild, co-author of A Mind At Peace, to discuss the fact that modern technology is designed with the human person as the product to be sold, and how the addictive elements are disrupting and deadening our relationship with God, our family and friends, and ourselves. We also discuss the hierarchy of virtues a man needs to work on to regain control of his faculties and grow in holiness.

In this episode we discuss;

  • How technology is here to stay but does NOT need to control us
  • How the perennial teachings of the Church can still be used for this combat
  • How each of us struggle and have certain practices we use to stay disciplined
  • And more

Joshua P. Hochschild is Professor of Philosophy and Director of Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Mount St. Mary’s University, where he also served six years as the inaugural Dean of the College of Liberal Arts. In addition to scholarly articles and books in medieval logic, metaphysics, ethics and social thought, his writing has appeared in Commonweal, First Things, Front Porch Republic, and the Wall Street Journal. He is co-author (with Christopher O. Blum) of A Mind at Peace: Reclaiming an Ordered Soul in the Age of Distraction (2017) and for 2020-21 he is President of the American Catholic Philosophical Association. He and his wife and their four children live in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
