If you are on a Mission to Learn, chances are pretty good that you are a philosopher in the truest sense – someone who loves knowledge. But maybe you haven’t thought about yourself that way or spent much time studying Philosophy with a capital “P.” If not, I recommend checking out The Philosophy Podcast from LearnOutLoud.com, and in particular, Discovering the Philosopher in You, a freebie from the Modern Scholar audio library featured in the latest episode of The Philosophy Podcast. Here’s the rundown:
In this lecture, Professor Colin McGinn deciphers what we mean when we say we ‘know’ something to be true. He traces the history of philosophical skepticism, giving the listener several historical arguments for the theory of knowledge, touching on arguments made by the likes of Plato, Descartes and other important philosophers.
The The Philosophy Podcast, which has been a standard selection on my iPod for some time now, also offers audio excerpts from a range of major philosophical works. And LearnOutLoud’s free directory offers more than 2000 free audio and video titles for the lifelong learner.Check it out today.
