    Coming Around to Platonism

    Coming Around to Platonism

    For years, I've been making anti-Platonist arguments. Now, I think I was wrong. The universe seems to be composed of both concrete and abstract stuff.

    Ep. 100 - Trying to Solve Philosophy | Patterson in Pursuit

    Episode 100 of Patterson in Pursuit! Wow, what a milestone. Thanks to everybody who has listened to and supported the show. I hope it's created value for you.
    In this episode, I share my personal thoughts about the show, some of my motivations, the conversations that were impactful to my own philosophy, and some funny experiences along the way. And of course, more heretical thoughts about the philosophy of mathematics.

    Ep. 99 - Non-Rationality and Psychedelics | Dr. Bernardo Kastrup

    Ep. 99 - Non-Rationality and Psychedelics | Dr. Bernardo Kastrup

    Do logic and rationality have limits? Are there ways to "get outside" of rational thinking? Do altered states caused by psychedelics provide true insight about the world, or are they illusory?
    These are the questions I discuss with Dr. Bernardo Kastrup, who shares some of his personal experiments and insights gained psychedelic drugs.

    Ep. 98 - "A Consciousness-Only Ontology" | Dr. Bernardo Kastrup

    Ep. 98 - "A Consciousness-Only Ontology" | Dr. Bernardo Kastrup

    Is everything ultimately mental? Do we need a theory of a physical world at all? Dr. Bernardo Kastrup joins me again to talk about idealism.
    This time, we go into great detail, both put our ideas to the test, and the result was one of my favorite interviews ever. I end up asking Bernardo some of the most difficult questions in philosophy.

    Understanding God as Nature or the Universe

    Solving the Interaction Problem

    Solving the Interaction Problem

    Dualism is an attractive philosophy with an Achilles' heel. Dualists since Descartes have never given a good answer to the problem of interaction.
    Finally, I think I've got one. I have a working resolution to the problem of interaction that I call a theory of indirect interaction, which allows effective interaction between objects in different ontological categories.
