On the 6th episode of Real Chat, Al continues his chat with university instructor and researcher Warren Tang.

Have you ever wondered about your own existence? How do we know what “exists”? Can language bring something into existence? Is there such a thing as complete objectivity when viewing the world? These questions and more are discussed in this fascinating episode of Real Chat!

This is Part 2 of our chat. Part 1 can be found in “Real Chat 5” which will be linked below. In that episode, hear more about Buddhism and how Warren got his start into philosophy!

As you listen, keep these 3 points in mind:

1. Try to understand (comprehend) the main ideas of the discussion.
2. Learn and note down new vocabulary words and phrases. To help, there is a starter list of vocabulary below.
3. Listen to how Warren expresses his thoughts. Also, listen to how Al acts as a facilitator in the discussion.
