In this weekly podcast join me in learning how to live well. Covering a variety of topics important to life, we will seek to live a life that constantly moves towards human flourishing (eudaimonia). That's generally what we do here.
On Racial Inequality
I haven't made an episode in a while, but I cannot remain silent on the racial inequality in our country. We must work to improve the racial inequality that systemically pervades our society.
019 - New Beginnings
This week, we will discuss beginnings and endings and how these go together. We will also briefly discuss time as a concept.
018 - It's Not About Me
Christmas is this week, so to fit with the spirit of the season, we are going to discuss the nature of joy and how it ties in with selflessness.
017 - Family and Tradition
This week, we will continue discussing some Christmas related topics by discussing family and tradition. We will largely emphasize choosing to see family members as friends and how this is beneficial.
016 - Materialism and... Stuff...
This week, we will take a look at materialism through the lens of the prevalence of materialism around Christmas. We will also look some at mind-body dualism and monism and the relation of these to materialism.
015 - Morality Wars
This week we will discuss morality. We will look at the three main moral systems: deontology, consequentialism, and virtue ethics. We will also see how these can be seen in popular culture through the Avengers movies.
Give it time
This podcast is brand new and teeming with potential. The first episode makes you think and sparks some pretty compelling internal dialogue on the part of the listener.
I highly recommend you subscribe because, over time, once Shaler hits his stride, this podcast will really grasp your attention and imagination.
Though it suffers from some structural problems (it can be a little hard to follow and Shaler can ramble from time to time), Shaler will figure this whole podcast thing out and when he does you want to be there.
I recommend this podcast not only because of who Shaler is and what this podcast is right now, but because of the potential of what I see it becoming!
This podcast makes you thing and Shaler has some cool ways to look at things in ways you haven’t quite thought of before. I love listening and going on this journey of life with Shaler!
Honest Reflections on Living Well
Right out of the gate, Shaler makes no claims to having all of the answers. What he does offer is the chance to join a young college student seeking the best way to live life through the lens of ancient philosophy. I’m excited to hear what he has to say going forward.
