@Gagi have you (or any other history lovers here) ever listened to Dan Carlin, with the podcast is Hardcore History? His podcasts are absolutely incredible, might be the best Ive ever heard, not just on history but podcasts in general. Strong focus on the historical rulers and their authoritarian and/or global conquests.

Have one on now and recon you would like it. Beyond fascinating and so in depth.
Haha so weird that you wrote this, just this afternoon I was listening to a AoM podcast episode about the rise and fall of Athens.

Will check out Carlin, although judging by some of the episode titles, seems like it's a bit too clickbaity, bit too accessible, bit too hardcore. Will try to find an episode I might like and give it a chance. Any particular episodes you might recommend?

ps:

In case you're scared of being turned to "the dark right wing side" :devilish: 😝

his follow up 12 more rules for life actually got quite a glowing review from one of Breadtube's main figureheads Philosophy Tube. Though you'll have to take his/her word for it as I also haven't been able to pick that up due to various life issues.
Honestly it's not even that. Just gotta make it a goal: "today I will (speed) read 30-50 pgs from his book"

I still have the man on Soundcloud, he told me he enjoyed his time here but seen as the entire forum (at least that was his impression) hated the music he loved (so basically the newer Orjan stuff) he decided to move on to a more producer-based forum as opposed to a trance music one.
Damn, that sucks
Can relate, tbh. I've had my music taste bashed here before, and after that I took a solid break.

I like Andrew Huberman, with the Huberman Labs podcast. His style really is fantastic and he gets the most out of guests. Its health and improvement focused.

I also like Sam Harris, mainly the episodes that focus on the human mind and psychology, as I am a practicing psychologist. He frames conversations often with ethics and deeper thinking which is not as common as you think for topics on podcasts.

you're hereby cordially invited to chip in into the "mental health " thread we have on this forum (y) would be great to actually have a proffesional say a word or two about things like palliatives, diagnoses and treatments

Maybe I should. I usually don't like giving advice to people I don't know, because context and history of the patient really must be understood. A reasonable picture must be formed. But I do obviously enjoy discussion on the topic so maybe I will join.

Slavoj žižek is also good philosopher his view on titanic is: ""The real catastrophe would be if they survived and after 2 or 3 weeks of intense sex in new york, the love affair would fade away."

And this girl Barbara Bleisch i NEVER seen woman seriously interested in philosophy. There are great female scientists in stem fields but really NEVER seen a woman deep into philosophy.


My take on philosophers are, i do not take them seriously, i rather look on neurologist, behavioral scientists who study brain and it´s connections to behavior. Most of the things that philosophers debated can be scientifically researched and explained.

The main character in her new movie is a "sinister man" and is based on Jordan Peterson's personality

Honestly, it's about time that someone based a villain off of one of those alt-right/MRA/anti-feminist types

Not sure if you're just trolling or labelling... Even though the man has gotten a bit berserk lately, try to go beyond the video titles and articles about him, and you'll find out his views are not that extreme.

😄 no. she's having beef with him.

Neither, its called being propagandized. or, "made to hate"

JBP is not on board with the frankfurt schule's view of humanity and/or Marxist practices, (mainly because they always do the opposite of what they're intended to do). However, a huge part of the "progressive" hollywood cult, of which Wilde is a part, is (unknowingly or knowlingly) very much on board with them.

Therefor: people must be made to believe he:

Is a Nazi
Loves incels
Hates women

this is simmilar to the red-lobster comic thingy a couple of years back.

@dmgtz96, you're, in my estimation, a victim of this narrative and I would recommend actually watching some of the man's lectures and/or podcasts to find out/ make up your own mind on what he actually thinks of the alt-right/mra/feminism etc.

He's a keen thinker. And for someone with a lisp/accent a great debater, and his take on titanic is spot on lol.

I do however think that, as a philosopher (who does not take philosophers seriously apparently) his "social constructivist views" are rather narrow simplistic and frankly archaic.

Philosphy and the human condition to a large degree can be rougly boiled down to 5 subcatagories/ chapters:
- epistimology
-metaphysics
-ethics
-logic
-aesthetics.

Science is only a (sub) part of metaphysics. its basically the philosophy of the natural world. It has, as a methodology, no finger(s) in the other 4 or maybe a very small one. I think its one of the reasons why i've never seen a good take by žižek on say: the Qualia problem

I actually end up watching Mikhaila's video about that and parts of her interview with the grad student incel researcher. Although I disagree with what a lot of Jordan Peterson says and think he sounds like an edgy teenager who just picked up a thesaurus, I like that people like him (and Mikhaila) exist to call out the bullshit of hypocritical Hollywood types (ex. Wilde)
So, carry on I guess

edit: personally I don't think JP today is a particularly good role model/influence to follow, but neither are the ultra-woke Hollywood types either

Gabor Mate is one of the greatest intellectual and humble minds out there. For me he is the definition of wisdom, not just because of his deep understanding and work on the human condition, but his knowledge and clarity across a wide range of other topics too. He is someone that actually lives and practices making peoples lives better, as opposed to endlessly debating the contentious topic of the hour. In my opinion, people like him are treasures to society.

yeah I agree with that. JP 2022 is what happens when a Boomer is exposed to the internet/put on twitter for the first time, and I actually think its a good thing he's off of that now. Rucka ali, a parody musician I quite like has a good take on the whole drama me thinks.

also: this video made my week, Roflmao
