Philosophy, with a hammer

Philosophy is for everyone. It can expand, uplift, and improve us. But so much of philosophy today is focused on deconstructing our lives, removing meaning, and dividing groups of people.

This is not what I’m doing. Because the goal is not simply to have knowledge, but to make it useful.

The Hardcore Philosophy podcast is built upon the best traditions and aimed at our highest potential. Philosophy, psychology, history, religion, science, culture, politics, and the greatest stories ever told. From Aristotle to Zarathustra.

Don't know where to start?

Start here – The Story of Philosophy.

This Story of Philosophy is a bit different than many, because it’s meant for you. It’s simple, practical, and describes the story of your life, whoever you are.
