I've made lots of new podcasts. You can normally find them via the link in the sidebar or subscribe in iTunes. I'm sharing this one on the blog because I especially recommend it:
You should actually do this ... or post your objections below. Also share comments, questions, tips for others, etc.
my notes for making this podcast
why to philosophy?
how to philosophy?
read books AND DISCUSS
should read my writing and my book recommendations AND OTHER SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT. read a variety including FI stuff and other stuff and judge for yourself.
analyze texts and share analysis. books and articles (and podcasts and youtubes) are made to let audience think they understand more than they do. they aren’t designed to criticize the reader’s understanding as he goes and get him to realize his ignorance. this is extremely widespread including among good authors and great thinkers, not just intellectual fakers. it’s part of the very tradition of what a book is. so you can’t just read books, that doesn’t work and has never worked well (which is why, in most intellectual fields, there are only like a max of 20 ppl who are actually good at it and making progress at a time, most ppl are pretty useless)
later: write ideas and expose to public criticism
debate ppl and expose the debates to criticism from anyone willing: post to ur blog, share link on FI, etc
youtube and podcasts are OK. variety is good. but they shouldn’t be primary. writing is more precise, serious, organized and quotable. writing is also *less* social.
A better subject would be How to unlearn bad philosophy
#12035 that seems like it requires good philosophy
Why is less social good?
