WHY-Philosophical Discussions About Everyday Life

About This Section
Sometimes it feels like there isn’t any intelligent debate left in the world. All we hear is fighting: irresponsible, loud-mouthed partisanship disguised as information. For 2500 years, philosophers have tried to cut through the rhetoric, the infighting, and the abuse. WHY? Philosophical Discussions About Everyday Life continues this tradition with a new audience: you.

Join host Jack Russell Weinstein each month as we engage in philosophical discussions about the most common-place topics. From explorations of hunting to discussions about domestic violence, from classic works of art to the most cutting edge digital media, from the American prairie to the heart of post-communist Romania, WHY? takes you on a journey through the great questions, the puzzling answers, and the deepest recesses of your mind.
