Hosted by philosopher Greg Reichberg, The Absolutes explores how our human search for an Absolute impacts on our everyday lives. How we think about ourselves – our personal fulfillment, ethics, and where we place ourselves on the metaphysical map of the universe.

Identifying how our different conceptions divide us, but also how we can have meaningful and constructive dialogue about them, are central themes for The Absolutes.

Love the Podcast!

I had the privilege recently of having Dr Reichberg on my podcast. I’ve listened to 4 episodes and have absolutely enjoyed them and will be recommending The Absolutes! -Halston Williams

Loved it!

My father introduced this podcast to me having studied philosophy in Toulouse, France with Mr. Reichberg, the narrator (my fathers name is Gustavo Rivero in case you remember). He knows my interest in philosophy and wanted me to give it a listen and I am so glad he did. I thoroughly enjoyed the podcast and learned so so much. Thank you!
