    Jaco’s Finds - Episode 2 - Dossier-Le Réveil by Laurent Gounelle

    Jaco’s Finds - Episode 2 - Dossier-Le Réveil by Laurent Gounelle

    My most recent find is an article from the INREES (Institut de Recherche sur les Expériences Extraordinaires) website about Rodrik's trilemma which introduced me to the book "Le Réveil" by Laurent Gounelle. But, much more than just a book about the latter, it is a thought-provoking book on how we are governed.

    My Views From 35,000 Feet - Episode 4 - How to Philosophize?

    My Views From 35,000 Feet - Episode 4 - How to Philosophize?

    When quoting Immanuel Kant, Frédéric Lenoir stated in a French Canadian television interview that we no longer dare to ask ourselves essential questions as we get older because we know the answers to be difficult." And perhaps he is right. But could it also be that we prevent ourselves from asking them because we are afraid to do so, or better yet, because we don’t know how to go about it?
    Here's is my take on how to go about it.

    My Views From 35,000 Feet - Episode 3 - Why philosophize?

    My Views From 35,000 Feet - Episode 3 - Why philosophize?

    To philosophize makes it possible to give meaning to the world in which one evolves, but even more, to give meaning to one’s existence. And while finding answers to our questions may be of interest, what matters most is not the result, but the process of reflection itself.

    My Views From 35,000 Feet - Episode 2 - Defining the act of philosophizing

    My Views From 35,000 Feet - Episode 2 - Defining the act of philosophizing

    "To philosophize is to reflect on one’s life and then live it based on those reflections." Free translation of a quote from André Comte-Sponville.
    Philosophizing consists of thinking in a reasoned way in order to better understand. It is a quest limited by that which is possible for us to know, with the ultimate goal of becoming wiser in order to be happier, and this throughout our existence as this quest is endless.

    These Lesser-Known Greats - Episode 1 - Introduction

    These Lesser-Known Greats - Episode 1 - Introduction

    Very humbly and in my own way, I will pick up the torch carried by Jacques Languirand for more than 42 years at the helm of his radio show “Par 4 Chemins” in order to make you discover these great authors or philosophers, past or present through their writings which are too often little or unknown.

    My Views From 35,000 Feet - Episode 1 - Introduction

    How important is one’s opinion? Well, without one, the world wouldn’t have progressed as it has, since it’s only through debates and discussions that a society can evolve. And without opinions nor debates, dialogues can't ensue. So, allow me to share my views from 35,000 feet.
