Supply lines of spirit and the value of military cadences
This episode of the eRochefoucauld podcast discusses a topic that is rarely, if ever, explored from a philosophical or academic perspective – military cadences. Inspired by both a Habermasian view of communication and public spheres of discourse and the general antipathy often found in military discourses, Evan goes deep into what cadences are and why they are important, from the ground up. A cadence, after all, is a song, born of struggle, necessity, and aimed at making the best of the circumstances. If you didn’t know anything about cadences (other than Hollywood) before this episode, you will soon have an appreciation and understanding, not only for the military cadence, but for the transformative value of music to the human spirit.
