This week we drop the N bomb! That’s right, a philosopher so hip and down with the kids that Danny and Mike feel ill equipped to take him on unaided. Yes, this week calls for skill, daring, panache and certain “she’ll be right” to bring it off. In the face of wicked fascist sisters, well dressed and cold free women and the death of your deity of ch…
 
This week Kierkegaard tells us that we really wouldn’t enjoy wealth, fame, power and glory …no, seriously, you’ll hate it so don’t even try. Giving it all away to the needy isn’t going to help either so don’t try that one on, you are only doing it to show off, so stop it, you aren’t fooling anyone. No, what you really need to do is take a giant lea…
 
This week Mike and Danny help Fichte to pack his bags after a very pleasant visit. Fichte tells us not to fuss as he'd far rather do his own packing because activity helps develop his consciousness and also expands the universal ego. Mike and Danny remind him that the last time he said that he left two pairs of socks and some underwear under our sp…
 
This week Mike and Danny witness the ego walk into Fichte's bar and tell everyone that they are unconscious. Listen in total astonishment as the not-ego stands up and accuses the ego of spilling it's pint. In the ensuing chaos, as the inevitable fight breaks out, listen for the Absolute Ego as it decides it's had quite enough of all this squabbling…
 
This week Mike and Danny abandon the world of sense experience for the inner recesses of human consciousness. While the material world was rather more robust the ideal world of the ego seemed to have a lot of extra space and let in plenty of light. If we take down that wall over there, the one separating the ego from the not-ego, Fichte assures us …
 
This week Danny and Mike launch themselves head first into the whirling maelstrom of Kantian ethics. Is Danny “a good man”? How do we know? Is simply being “good” enough for Kant - spoiler alert, it isn’t. As we cling to the categorical imperative in a desperate hope that it will save us from being smashed against the rocks of a godless universe wi…
 
This week we introduce the man with the plan, the man who can … the man called Kant. Immanuel brings the pain when he gets into the ring with “The Sceptic Tank” the Scotsman who is not afraid to stare into the face of empiricism and say “meh, I don’t know”. Yes, this episode has it all - well some of it at least, where would you put it “all” even i…
 
In this weeks cast ... as with the previous 55 but by no means establishing it in any way as some sort of natural law. I mean, yes these podcasts have been coming out every Wednesday for over a year now so I guess you could be excused for thinking that number 56 was inevitable, that it was a universal law that it had to come out today. But you’d be…
 
This week join us as Locke teaches us how to make a unicorn in the comfort of our own heads. How certain are we of our certainties? Listen, or don’t, your choice, as Mike and Danny wave a stick at Cartesian certainty and tell it to get off their land or they’ll set the dogs on it. Was the Enlightenment really the paradigm shift we needed or was it …
 
This week we ask the question, “what do we bring to the party?” If Danny brings bottles of beer does he simply bring the shape, weight and the number of bottles and then leaves me to do all the heavy lifting adding the perception of colour, flavour, smell and taste? Does John Locke allow us to have our objective cake and eat it? Do we get excited w…
 
This week Danny and Mike confront the fearful menace of ... THE MONADS! Flee in stark unreasoning fear as Leibniz directs his monad army to isolate us from all we hold dear! Shiver in bone chilling terror as you are forced to join the monad legions with only coincidence for a friend. Giggle in solipsitic madness as they appear to be coming for you.…
 
This week Danny and Mike move a grain of sand and change the world, do they create an alternate reality or just a very small sand-pit? Join us as we play the game "stick the name god on things in the sky”. Is Mike justified in his one man genocidal mission to eradicate the moths that are eating their way through his coat? Who is Billy the moth??? H…
 
This week Danny and Mike look at each other and ask the question “Is that the face of god?” As the sun continues to shine we take a walk along the beach with William Paley and go looking for accidental watches amongst the rock pools. Do the gods post messages to us and send us pictures of their cats and what they had for lunch or have they unfriend…
 
This week, the 'boys' of post Cartesian rationalism are back in town! Watch with envy as the cool kids, Spinoza and Leibniz, click their way menacingly down the main street of Western Enlightenment pushing the clergy off the pavement. Listen, or don’t listen, it doesn’t much matter it’s all the same either way, as you, yes you! are awarded the titl…
 
This week join Mike and Danny as the wander through the Cartesian garden. Sniff the delightful fragrance of the ontological orchid, walk bare foot through the foliage of certainty while delving into the compost of epistemological doubt. All this and sentient bombs are yours for the mere cost of admission. Oh yes and we mention Harley for no extra c…
 
This week, who knows? Perhaps we will lie to you, perhaps we will tell you the truth and you will not hear it properly. It could be that Danny and Mike are evil beings messing with your sense of reality - who can tell? Ultimately you just have to trust us, right? I mean, why would we lie to you?…unless we are voices in your head and you are lying t…
 
Yes, it’s starting to feel like summer and Mike and Danny have decamped to the beer garden but it is still business as usual. Words? What are they good for? How reflexive is that question? This week we leave Erasmus and the humanists as they turn the light of human reason upon sacred texts. Suddenly, in an explosion of self-awareness Descartes emer…
 
This week the Enlightenment swaggers into a bar with its shirt unbuttoned to the chest and a big old medallion on the go, “Check me out guys!” it says. Is its brazen confidence justified or when the last dance is had will it be going home alone by the end of the 19th century? Is reason simply god in a lab coat carrying a clipboard? How retro is tha…
 
This week hear Mike and Danny sing Sinatra’s classic “My Way” on the grounds that it is the theme tune to the Enlightenment*. Where is the centre of the cosmos? How do we find out? Copernicus, a brave man or a smart man? you decide. Also in this episode see Danny take on Captain Kirk in a political fight to the death! All of this and the Enlightenm…
 
This week, enjoy the spectacle of Danny trying to say the word “consciously”. As god’s job is put in jeopardy by the nascent Enlightenment where can we look for certainty? What does Machiavelli have to offer the budding dictator? Will Danny grow a twirly moustache? Do we need a strong despotic leader to compensate for a crumbling metaphysic? Is Dan…
 
In this week's cast Danny and Dr Mike keep a close eye on Western thought as it claims to be moving out of it parents place and finding it’s own digs. Can setting fire to a library actually precipitate a paradigm shift? Is it important to poke academics and scholars with a sword occasionally so as to get them to move about bit? Was giving birth to …
 
This week Danny and Dr. Mike travel far beyond the fields we know. Hear Danny as he cries out "Now would I give a thousand furlongs of sea for an acre of barren ground: long heath, brown furze, anything. The wills above be done, but I would fain die a dry death!” Listen on in stupefied awe as our heroes drag themselves from the churning ocean and s…
 
This week, has Danny got an honest face? Would you trust him to sell you a used car? Augustine isn’t so sure. Also this week does everything make sense when you are part of the club? Is it good to try and believe six impossible things before breakfast? Watch Anselm demonstrate this point by addressing the question Cur Deus Homo. Listen in stupefied…
 
This week WAR! What is it good for? Who can we do it to and why? Augustine leads the charge but only against the bad guys. Also in this exciting episode Danny and Mike try and understand belief. Does faith have an internal logic? What comes first faith or understanding? Is belief the basis of all knowledge? Are Danny and Mike credible sources of in…
 
This week, we watch in mute admiration as Augustine welds the front end of a nascent Semitic monotheistic religion to the back end of a neo-platonic dualism. How will this hybrid perform at speed? Will it deliver economic millage? Also in this cast who can you legitimately punch in the nose? All this and rumblings from the trench at the bottom of t…
 
In this weeks cast we raise the issue of… well… we kind of talk about…er… that is to say Mike and Danny have a frank discussion on the subject of … well, you know, do we have to spell it out for you?? Any way, it’s all very embarrassing but there it is. I’m glad we had this talk, best to get everything out in the open, no need to beat around the bu…
 
This week look on in shock as Mike and Danny lift up the robes of Augustine only to find Plato lurking beneath whistling nonchalantly as the great Saint smuggles him into Western Christendom. How good a wing man would the early Augustine have been? Does our background explain who we are or dismiss who we are? Have you watched Jim Jarmusch’s “Night …
 
This weeks cast is all about us and we make no apology for that! Listen in total lack of surprise as Danny introduces Wittgenstein into the discussion without any thought for other people. Do the Stoics bring nothing to the party? Are we turning into a self help service? Also from the depths of Diogenes barrel hear Mike weeping like a small child a…
 
This week why not attempt to swim against the tide as Mike and Danny seek to convince you to accept your Stoic destiny and listen once again to their podcast. Consider, with a sense of calm resignation, the very real possibility that this podcast was intended for you, it was ALWAYS intended for you and that to attempt to ignore it is to do nothing …
 
This week we defy you not to shed a tear as Mike reminisces about Terry O’Conner and the thwarting of teenage desire. Listen in mute disbelief as Danny regales you with tales of Diogenes the Cynic and his impropriety in a public place. Is passion the enemy of a contented life? Are Mike and Danny predestined by the rational laws of the universe to p…
 
This week Mike and Danny adopt a stiff upper lip in the face of all adversity. Listen in mild, but in no way extreme, disgust as Mike snarfs down a slice of carrot cake in a noisy and self indulgent manner. Look on in studied disinterest as Danny is forced to shoehorn Wittgenstein into a discussion of the Epicureans. Gaze in mute acceptance at Dann…
 
In this week's cast Mike and Danny abandon their off the peg Platonic souls in favour of a bespoke Aristotelian alternative painstakingly hand sown from pieces of lived experience. Who or what is the Unmoved Mover? Why does it have all the dominoes? Does everything have a cause? Where does the buck stop? Listen once again as Danny manages to shoeho…
 
This week Mike attempts to conform to the ideal while Danny seeks to understand the world in all its variety and empirical particularity. Is the world made up of clear and logical distinctions? Are there no middle grounds? Can we have our cake AND eat it? More to the point, can we eat our cake and still have it? Will our children ever forgive us fo…
 
This week be amazed as Aristotle teaches us that as all men are mortal and Danny is a man so all men are Danny. Take comfort in the fact that to be a philosopher it is perfectly acceptable to simply poke stuff about a bit and see what happens rather than mess about in caves drinking hemlock. Virtue, logic, the dialectic and a big bowl of edamame be…
