I have tried to make sense of Deleuze for years and suddenly not only do I get it I’m excited by his ideas! Stephen West is incredible - so clear and articulate, making complex ideas so accessible. Absolutely love this series and am recommending to everyone interested in philosophy and ideas in general.
I read an introduction to philosophy this week and I wanted to learn more, so I decided to listen to a podcast series and chose this one. It’s been amazing! The host explains often complex ideas in accessible ways, while including examples to explain these ideas. I would highly recommend to anybody who wants to learn more about philosophy.
Just wow but should have kept the cringe rock intervals! Lmao
