What is the value of philosophy in everyday life and work?
In Plato’s famous Allegory of the Cave, the final lesson is that the philosophers who have escaped the darkness and ignorance of the cave must turn back, and apply their hard-won wisdom for the good of society.
Likewise, in the Zen Oxherding pictures, a metaphor for the journey to enlightenment, the final picture is of a smiling monk entering the marketplace with bliss-bestowing hands.
Join me as I interview different species of philosophers–Rogues, Naturals, Agents, and Escape Artists–who found their way through the wilderness beyond the ivory tower.
Together, we explore how philosophy can add value in business, government…and pretty much everything else.
Can philosophy offer us not just a way of life, but a way to make a living?
