Wah Wonders Why - What the Philosophy!?
( Week 1 of Nov 2018 )
Greg talks to ethicist Kevin Lowe about the backfire effect, fear as the basis of society and whether philosophy is a real thing anyway.

Before anyone else says it, I got Isaac and Abraham backwards. Mea culpa.

What a ripper of a discussion, loved it.
For me there are two different views of what is the most important purpose of philosophy - What is the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline, or How to live a life that is fulfilling and meaningful. I tend to seek the latter which is why I read and think on the stoics a lot Seneca, Epictetus and of course Marcus Aurelius.
Interestingly teaching philosophy in schools seems correlate (and I am not implying causation) to improvements in NAPLAN scores due to the practice in critical thinking.

I wasn’t going to say anything. I got my name and my wife’s confused during our wedding vows.
Enjoyed the podcast immensely. Do more with Greg.
