Philosophy is for everyone. It can expand, uplift, and improve us. But so much of philosophy today is focused on deconstructing our lives, removing meaning, and dividing groups of people.
This is not what I'm doing. Because the goal is not simply to have knowledge, but to make it useful.
The Hardcore Philosophy podcast is built upon the best traditions and aimed at our highest potential. Philosophy, psychology, history, religion, science, culture, politics, and the greatest stories ever told. From Aristotle to Zarathustra.
This is the #1 podcast made entirely with a hammer.
The Leap of Faith is a very abused and taken advantage of maxim. But yet it is a maxim. It is a truth we experience, in so far as all action is the conclusion of degrees of uncertainty. But therein lies the point: action. Because the leap of faith is not simply a metaphysical concept. It is not under the domain of inspirational memes and imagery. It is at its very core, the leap itself. Thinking serves doing; ideas serve action; God, or Truth, or our highest of desires, is something we perform, not simply something we articulate. And of course, there is perhaps no event quite like the World Cup, where reason defying leaps of faith are made by billions around the world. So welcome back to this series of Hardcore Philosophy, featuring the World Cup.
