Podcast: The Amateur Society – Origin Of Life – 08.26.2019

2019.08.26

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This week we look at a critical subject in science: the origin of life. It is challenging to assess competing theories about the origin of life because the landscape is laden with worldview baggage. As such, having a genuine discussion typically takes a back seat to personal attacks. For the dedicated amateur, thinking about this subject offers a wide array of insight into how to examine key ideas. The truth about this question has tremendous implications. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Defining Beauty – 08.19.2019

2019.08.20

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This week we examine an age old topic in philosophy: beauty. Whether in the natural landscapes around us or in the human experience, defining beauty and grounding it properly in our worldviews is trickier than it might first appear. Are the standards of beauty objective or subjective, and what might the implications of each be? We hope that you enjoy this conversation and greatly appreciate your time here with us. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Dualism And Intentionality – 07.15.2019

07.17.2019 AS

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another interesting philosophical conversation! In this episode, the group examines the distinctions between dualism and naturalism when it comes to consciousness and considers a relatively new argument for dualism concerning intentionality. Are the brain and the mind one and the same, or do mental states have properties that brain states do not? What are the right tools to examine these questions? What implications so different positions have? Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!
