The further I get into these, the more I realize that this guy's mostly pushing his religious bent and he supposes that Christianity is his biggest enemy.

This is a very, very nice podcast on philosophy in my opinion, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone. Stephen West has a way of making sense of - and explain - some pretty abstract concepts in a way that, I think, most people will find entertaining, engaging and - from time to time - even awe-inspiring. He does so, seemingly unbiased, choosing his words carefully without getting dull or too politically correct. This podcast, to me, feels like it really has the goal to teach, and not to preach.

One thing notably problematic: after explaining how hominids expanded across the globe, the impression is given that all philosophical advancements prior to Socrates were from the Mediterranean. Pretty sure that the Asians of that period would disagree...

"40 times" is not just used back then! It is in Persian language and still is being used.

I'm on episode 3. I'll likely keep pushing through a little bit longer. I like the clarity and conciceseness. But wholly frustrated with the obvious westernized approach to philosophy as a whole. it's not that he is simply dealing with western thought, it's that he has already predetermined philosophy as simply a slave to science and rational thought with enlightenment ideals as its governance. Through this lens, the entire point of philosophy is not the engagement of ideas, but the embodiment of progress as we see it today, which is a very narrow view of history and philosophy. The moment he described mystery as something to be feared is where I really started to throw up my hands. And the venomous way in which notions and language that speak of God or religion or mystery or spirituality occupy his vernacular tips the hat towards his reigning bias. Suffice to say I am torn.

Dave Courtney I would advice you to keep listening. You may find he is not per say preferencing anything, or willfully approaching philosophy in any way. It would actually not surprise me if he'd take your critiques very seriously, do something with them, and thank you for your attentiveness.

Doesn't need to be morally justified.
