Amazing history of philosophy

I just finished from the beginning and can’t wait to go through it again. Accessible and always thought provoking. I came looking for answers and found more and more questions, and that might be the whole point. Thank you Stephen West.

Exactly what I hoped for

Words hardly begin to express how much I love this podcast and more so, how much I needed it. Philosophy is hard to wrap your head around and this podcast makes it approachable by all. Amazing job. Well done.
