Philosophy



1. History of Philosophy: Occams Nominalism: A Close Shave

Ockham trims away the unnecessary entities posited by other scholastics.

2.  Confucious on Virtuous Conduct (Part 1)

On the Analects, compiled after 479 BCE. How should we act? What's the relation between ethics and politics? Can a bunch of aphorisms written in the distant past for an unapologetically hierarchical culture emphasizing traditional rituals actually give us relevant, welcome advice on these matters? Are we even in a position to determine the meaning of these sayings? With guest Tzuchien Tho.
