    EP #52 | A Conversation with Will Knowland

    EP #52 | A Conversation with Will Knowland

    Will Knowland was removed from his role at the prestigious Eton College after posting a lecture on Youtube challenging the third wave modern feminist concept 'toxic masculinity'.  Knowland was sacked after he repeatedly refused requests from the college's head master Simon Henderson to take the video down. The video, called the Patriarchy paradox, has been viewed more than 100,000 times and is a refutation of claims outlined by some third wave feminists. Due to the perceived controversy Mr. Knowland’s wife has also been targeted and fired from her job rendering the couple technically homeless. Mr. Knowland’s argument that children need to understand all sides of an argument and his belief that young boys should not allow themselves to feel shame for being boys, has been ignored by the prestigious Eton school head master.

    EP #50 | Objectivity for Human Beings

    EP #50 | Objectivity for Human Beings

    Even though we humans have lots of knowledge, we do not necessarily have a good and full theory of knowledge. Yet we should not let the lack of a good theory, deny the existence of what the theory should be explaining.

    Humans have cognitive faculties with limitations. One can form snap judgments, but one can also recognize and pursue the objective principle of viewing as many perspectives as is necessary. One learns about one’s cognitive limitations over time, so one learns that to make a judgment about something beyond one’s immediate cognitive limitation, one needs to do extra work.

GP the Bergamask ,

Extraordinarily Entertaining and Informative

Wow, finally someone who can teach the differences between collectivist movements. Most importantly, Philosophy docet. Political systems come from there.

seine111 ,

bootleggers and baptists

This is possibly the best, most-informative explanation of the thinking behind the P/C Group think movement that I've ever heard.

JeffyTO007 ,

Jordan Peterson

Jordan Peterson got me interested in Prof Hicks. I’m still learning but this is a must listen.
