The best philosophy podcast

This is the best podcast on philosophy I’ve listened to. It presents complex topics in discussions with experts but in a tone and method that is accessible to the non-philosopher.

Excellent

It is so much fun to browse through this podcast and find 15 minute discussions on the topics of my interest. Really delightful.

Naive

I listened to the too much Democracy diatribe. The basic assertion was that as a democratic society, we tended to associate with others based on our democratic heritage.

What a bunch of rubbish... it’s akin to the assertion that we can spend to much time with our families and our friends.

The authors have a diversity model in mind... moreover, the authors assert that diverse groups tend to congregate into groups (segregation).

The idea that similar groups cannot work together unless they live together. This theory is as inadequate and unfounded that people cannot work together in a complex organization unless they live in the same housing complex... This is a very primitive idea. With the implicit assumption that people cannot use there belief systems and ethics to rule their emotions.

The worst idea is that we are better at Democracy if we do things that ignore Democracy.... In some ways this is akin to a sports team working together in a non-sports manner to improve their sports team. The underlying premise is that too much Democracy will tend to make all things political... but only if the people that are participating have no maturity.
