  • Utilitarianism. Principles, Criticisms, and Contemporary Perspectives.

    16 MAG 2024 · This episode will be exploring Utilitarianism’s Principles, Criticisms, and Contemporary Perspectives. Utilitarianism is a moral theory that suggests the rightness or wrongness of an action is determined by its consequences, specifically by the amount of happiness or pleasure it produces. This theory traces its origins to the works of Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill, who developed and popularized utilitarian thought in the 19th century. Jeremy Bentham, in his book "An Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation," laid out the basic principles of utilitarianism. He argued that the goal of ethics should be to maximize happiness or pleasure and minimize suffering or pain for the greatest number of people. This concept of "the greatest happiness principle" forms the foundation of utilitarianism.

  • Metaphysics for Dummies.

    15 MAG 2024 · This episode is a summary of all the facinating ideas behind Metaphysics.

  • How to adopt a Stoic mindset.

    14 MAG 2024 · In the bustling streets of ancient Athens, a philosophy emerged that would come to influence some of the greatest minds in history. Stoicism, founded by Zeno of Citium in the early 3rd century BC, is not just a set of ideas but a way of life, a practical philosophy aimed at building a deep sense of inner peace and strength. This episode will teach you how to adopt a stoic mindset and be free from mental suffering by changing your mindset. Stoicism takes its name from the Stoa Poikile, or “painted porch,” where Zeno and his followers would meet to discuss their ideas. The Stoics believed that the path to a good life lies in aligning oneself with the natural order of the universe, which they referred to as the Logos. This Logos, they believed, governs the world with wisdom and reason, and humans can attain eudaimonia, or flourishing, by living in harmony with it.
