20 minute intro to philosophy
I will give you a quick overview of philosophy, and the search for life meaning and wisdom. We will learn about the dawn of Western philosophy in Greece, with the first ever prediction of a solar eclipse, by Thales, in 585 BCE. We will trace the rise of different ways of understanding the meaning of life, how we can know anything, and the nature of the universe. I will ask you for your current interests, and recommend some further readings which may interest you, including both Western authors, and Eastern authors. Selections from Confucius, the Buddha, Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Seneca, as well as modern writers such as Nietzsche, and Sartre. 20 minute session.
Training & Qualifications
I am a PhD student in philosophy and medical ethics. I have taught Introduction to Ethics at the university level, including Virtue based ethics, duty based ethics of Immanuel Kant, and utilitarian ethics of Bentham and John Stuart Mill.
