The Story of Philosophy

Update: 2018-07-295


Philosophy is often viewed as a field of isolation, or the literal ivory tower. The word is seen as a big word, a fancy word, used by the elite, arrogant, and out of touch.

That’s not what I’m doing here.

Philosophy is the story of humanity and the history of ideas, and it’s meant for everyone.

This episode is my attempt to answer three basic questions about philosophy.

What is Philosophy?

  • object, and subject – 1:50

  • the line, and the glue – 5:04

  • letters and representation – 6:50

  • if it is not anything… – 8:11

How is Philosophy Useful?

  • we always face this choice – 10:02

  • yet we exist in two worlds – 11:20

  • recurrence, and rise – 13:02

Why is Philosophy Important?

  • if why, then anything – 14:47

  • a foundation – 17:34

  • time… – 19:29

  • … and space – 20:58

  • the road to heaven – 23:03

  • so look down – 24:29

  • and look up – 24:57

  • vine, and fig tree – 25:27

An Epic of Masculinity
When good men sit down, bad men stand up. When masculine virtues are ignored, masculine vices reign. When kings are told to go away, tyrants take their place. This is not just a description, but a strategy.This results in a world where a plurality of masculine figures without virtue are in leadership positions in governments, companies, and organizations. This structure is incentivized to forward and repeat the societal talking points whereby masculinity is defined as toxic. This narrative helps prevent good men from rising up.The toxic masculine narrative is the norm, of both history and today.I'm going to crush this status quo, by uplifting masculine idealism.It is a simple formula. Competence + Ethics. This is the masculine ideal.We are a species that doesn’t do well with nuance. We see so many bad men in the world and in the news, and we drift towards simple answers: men are bad. With this we forget that our last and best hope against tyranny is the development of masculine ideals and virtues.It is for this reason that stories about the positive masculine (and omens about the negative masculine) have survived and thrived for thousands of years.I’m going to crush the historic and modern status quo that defines all men as toxic, not by offering my critique of their position, but by offering the alternative. The alternative are these stories and lessons from history, philosophy, and idea. These stories have one purpose: uplift the positive masculine, and teach masculine ideals.
