Spreading the Word: Value of Philosophy

In this week’s “Spreading the Word”, I share with you a video. It is a short 6 minutes clip taken from a longer (~45 min) interview on the topic of the value of philosophy. Since this subject is on my mind lately and I have written the first part of my essay on it here, the views of the speakers resonate with me, and add a different perspective, which, I think, is worth sharing. In addition, some statements are sure to make you smile.

On a separate note, I recommend to check some other videos on this YouTube channel (Philosophy Overdose). They have a lot of interesting interviews with various philosophers.

“Societies decay when (belief structures) remain unchallenged.”

Keeping up the new “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Thursday I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. Especially now, during our uncertain times, I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned to storytelling when everything else fails. My Thursdays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.

keep exploring and storytelling!
