In this episode I share a bit about a few challenges I'm facing right now and my ability to bet on myself, rather than giving into doubt and fear.Will you bet on yourself when the odds may seem stacked against you?  Would you know how to help someone else make a choice in this regard if asked to assist?Look back at your wins and create a powerful momentum from them that can be your runway or ramp to move up to success.  Don't let fear creep in and destroy you or hinder you from the great things you can bring to this world when in your full power.Enjoy,Jeff

The website has a very brief page on African philosophy so this is a short episode.African Philosophy is a disputed term, partly because it is not clear if it refers to philosophies with a specifically African theme or context (such as distinctively African perceptions of time, personhood, etc.), or just any philosophizing carried out by Africans (or even people of African descent).One of the earliest works of political philosophy was the Maxims of the Egyptian official and philosopher Ptah-Hotep as early as the 24th Century B.C. The Egyptian Hellenistic philosopher Plotinus of the 3rd Century B.C. is credited with founding the Neoplatonist school of philosophy. as mentioned, I'm going to take just a couple of days off to decide my next route.  This wraps up 5 Minute Philosophy and I hope you enjoyed it.Back soon with another short series and we have two new interviews coming next week as well.Thanks --- Jeff
So we close out Eastern Philosophy with this Part 2 episode on Japanese philosophy, mainly in the three schools of Buddhism - "Buddhism definitively entered Japan (from its native India, via China and Korea) in A.D. 550. Each major period after that - the Nara period (up to 784), the Heian period (794–1185) and the post-Heian period (1185 onwards) - saw the introduction of new doctrines and upheavals in existing schools." and tomorrow we start into African Philiosophy.Jeff
Our fascinating discovery of Eastern Philosophy continues in this Part 1 of the Japanese schools.Interesting fact:  "Buddhism definitively entered Japan (from its native India, via China and Korea) in A.D. 550. Each major period after that - the Nara period (up to 784), the Heian period (794–1185) and the post-Heian period (1185 onwards) - saw the introduction of new doctrines and upheavals in existing schools."Source: --- Jeff
Giving you 10 minutes today to make up for the miss yesterday.  We get into the intros of both Chinese and Korean philosophies in this episode with a small side bar on a paper I started writing a couple years ago.  May delve into that soon.Chinese Philosophy refers to any of several schools of philosophical thought in the Chinese tradition, including Confucianism, Taoism, Legalism, Buddhism and Mohism (see below for brief introductions to these schools). It has a long history of several thousand years.Korean Philosophy has been influenced by a number of religious and philosophical thought-systems over the years, including Shamanism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism:Both from http://philosophybasics.comEnjoy ---- Jeff
Join me for part 2 of Indian Philosophy where we mostly discuss Vedanta, with a little bit on Political philosophy at the end.From the page: "The Arthashastra, attributed to the Mauryan minister Chanakya in the 4th Century B.C., is one of the earliest Indian texts devoted to political philosophy, and it discusses ideas of statecraft and economic policy. During the Indian struggle for independence in the early 20th Century, Mahatma Gandhi popularized the philosophies of ahimsa (non-violence) and satyagraha (non-violent resistance), which were influenced by the teachings of the Hindu Bhagavad Gita, as well as Jesus, Tolstoy, Thoreau and Ruskin."   http://philosophybasics.comEnjoy ----- Jeff
We're going to leave Western behind for a bit and start our dive into Eastern philosophy in this episode.  We get started on Indian today, starting with the Hindu schools of Samkhya and Yoga.Enjoy --- Jeff

Part 2 in our discussion of Epistemology, where I re-examine an example in the text that's just a little too loose for me - until I go back and read it again.Ah this philosophy stuff - gotta love it.Enjoy --- Jeff
Switching it up from the deepness of Existentialism to the new subject of Epistemology.  We about knowledge of "how" and knowledge of "that", and we tackle a tongue twister from Aristotle on the nature of truth.And did you know that Reliabilism, Evidentialism, and Infallibilism are schools of thought that actually exist?  Oh wait - did I just slip back into Existentialism?  Enjoy!   Jeff
