We’ll finish my Hoffman's, Case Against Reality, review project, 'Playing Basketball in Zerogravity' with a look at the serious side of philosophy. It seems only fair considering some of my wise ass remarks in previous segments.
I’ll admit to having issues with the showboats who demonstrate little respect for honesty, and constructive learning. As for serious philosophy, that I can relate to on a personal homegrown level.
That’s why I’m grateful to Lausten over at CFI for sharing a genuinely insightful talk by Richard Carrier, explaining what philosophy was, is and isn’t. I’ve rerun it a couple times and it keeps improving. It's a wonderfully fitting closing segment for this review, and I hope Skepticon doesn’t mind me sharing some of Carrier's posters.
