I've been disappointed with my reading of philosophy books over the last year, so here are the reasons why.
In Episode #326 of 'Musings' Juan and I discuss: my loose definition of philosophy and philosophers, why I came in with high expectations, whether you should be able to read a book as a stand alone, linking deep ideas back to reality, Interlingua and how a lot of philosophy can be semantics, a list of all the books I read over this last year and some thoughts on being too dumb to understand.
A big thanks to TheBigCheese, Rastacalavera, This Is The Future and Joey Broad Shoulders for supporting the show. A handsome bunch of individuals!
As always, we hope you enjoy. Mere Mortals out!
