The Discourse on Method is best known as the source of the famous quotation “cogito ergo sum”, “I think, therefore I am.” …. It is a method which gives a solid platform from which all modern natural sciences could evolve.

Philosophiraga is an audio presentation in the Well-Red Mage family of content. Each episode, I look at a big idea from the history of philosophy and discuss how it relates to the world of video games.

If you've already studied philosophy, you're unlikely to learn anything new from Philosophiraga... but I hope you might be able to enjoy listening anyway.

All these questions and more will be... maybe answered, or maybe just alluded to, in this episode on Bishop Berkeley's subjective idealism. We also talk about video games a bit, of course. If you're a fan of the …
 
The philosopher Mary Astell (1666 – 1731) has been described as “the first English feminist”. Born in Newcastle in relatively poor circumstances in the aftermath of the upheaval of the English Civil War and the restoration of the monarchy, she moved to London as a young woman and became part of an extraordinary circle of intellectual and aristocrat…
 
What's even real anyway, dude? Like, does the world even exist, yo? These, albeit perhaps not phrased in quite the same way, are big questions in philosophy, and this episode is an introduction to ontology: the study of being and existence. Stay tuned for the rest of the module on ontology, in which we'll explore some theories about what there migh…

This episode is an introduction to a few useful fallacies, illuminated with examples from the world of gaming. If you're a fan of the show, I'm given to understand that feeding the algo…

It's a special interview episode: my guest is none other than my other half, Hannah! We discuss her gaming history, why she wants her games to be colourful and not boring, and how she feels about philosophy. Her views on philosophy might not be what you'd expect from someone who lives with me, but hey, different perspectives are what the world need…
