The Partially Examined Life is a podcast by some guys who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it. Each episode, we pick a short text and chat about it with some balance between insight and flippancy. You don't have to know any philosophy, or even to have read the text we're talking about to (mostly) follow and (hopefully) enjoy the discussion. For links to the texts we discuss and other info, check out www.partiallyexaminedlife.com. We also featu ...
 
Jim and Mark use the insane ramblings of a tiny-handed narcissist to explain logical fallacies.

[Explicit for Language] “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows. ... In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it.

Fellini called his film "La Strada" a dangerous representation of his identity, and had a nervous breakdown just before completing its shooting. Perhaps this identity, and its vulnerability, have something to do with the film’s representation of a disappointed hope that love might vanquish pride, if properly assisted by the forces of playfulness an…

What makes a particular wo…

Human beings are rational, right? We can control our emotions and reason our way through morality. At least that's what many of us think and feel. The truth is much more complicated.

One thing that humans universally struggle with is dealing with life's inevitable suffering and pain, so much so that we often catch ourselves and others purposefully avoiding the beautiful aspects of life because we are afraid of the negative emotions that will follow.

In the late 19th century, the "New Woman" was a term coined by Henry James for a particular kind of feminist who demanded freedom of behavior, dress, education, and sexuality.
