Are Ideologies Dangerous?
This week's episode is with Tom Morris, my friend and favorite philosopher. During our chat, we explored the origin of ideologies, their importance, their dangers, and how we as a culture need to better understand what they are doing to us. We talked about Gilgamesh, Tolstoy, Aristotle, and Kung Fu on a New York City subway. Oh, and we came up with a few ideas on how we can all start to get along a bit better. I hope you enjoy his wisdom as much as I did.
