Bonobo + Chimpanzee makes your argument against biology much harder. Put in colony behaviour like mole rats or bees and it gets extremely hard. Do a podcast on Robert Sapolsky :). Also you're massively overlooking female aggression which is brutal but not in a physical way due to sexual dimorphism (I.e most men are stronger than most women).

but wouldn't the tribal guy say the volcano is unknowable from their point of view, how could they even conceive of gaining knowledge about such a thing? Yet, we have. Maybe Kant's faith is just the same thing and biased in the same way, claiming something is unknowable only to be proved wrong in further eons of the human pursuit of knowledge. Knowledge IS the paradigm, because knowledge about the limits of knowledge and how to explore beyond beats the argument that it is not the paradigm.

feel kinda dorky about this, but just noticed the thing SW did with the show titles: "three... two... one... blast off..." I love it so!

Wait, if no one should be a means to an end doesnt that mean that everyone would then end up being the means to a single end, that of having no one be a means to an end? Does this mean that wanting to save the 5 people a means to end, even though its a sort of unconscious end of preserving the human species? That means Kant being alive was a means to an end too. By his own deontology should he have killed himself? Or would that also put us in the situation of my first thought? help :(

Hi, thank you for the great content. Can you make an episode about Rollo May, in the context of Existentialism?

first of all I really like this podcast! now about the second thing . it's a bit annoying that you can't give comments about the podcast in it's site... and lastly, please keep the musical pauses that you ceased to play in the first episodes. I really liked the idea of "dividing" the episode!

This is a much better intro to Derrida than some of the classes I've been to. What I like most about his work is how it puts a spin into stuff you've probably never thought about (or somewhat took for granted).

Complexity creep. Modern day Avicenna would go nuts due to too much information...

This episode is great, the thought of life and it's purpose is one of my favorite topics because it is an idea opposed to fact, because lifes purpose is unknown. Hearing about such great philosophers ideas on the subject can be extraordinary.
