Miss Part 1?
I mean, just… wow. Anyway…
Here are all the links from the description, but prettier:
Philosophy is a big ol’ monster of a subject, so it can be hard to know where to start. In this video I’ll give you a quick overview of the six branches of philosophy, and provide some resources that also introduce the subject in an accessible way, in case you want to learn more.
The Great Courses and The Great Courses Plus! The Modern Intellectual Tradition from Descartes to Derrida with Lawrence Cahoone The Great Ideas of Philosophy with Daniel N. Robinson The Big Questions of Philosophy with David K. Johnson Why Evil Exists with Charles Mathewes Science Fiction and Philosophy with David K. Johnson

Will Durant’s “ The Story of Philosophy” Bertrand Russell’s “ A History of Western Philosophy” “ Exploring Metaphysics” with David K. Johnson
What else? The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy on…
Metaphysics / Epistemology / Logic / Ethics / Politics
I also really love this website:
I also just found this
free Intro textbook while looking for the above site.
Okay, you’re here. This is exciting. So first, I might be biased but I think you should go check out my
“Philosophy” tab because… I want you to?
Additionally! I know sometimes people are like “you didn’t leave the visual aid/text bit up for long enough!” – for which I’m sorry, it’s hard to time stuff like that right and I’m working on it, BUT here’s all that stuff in one convenient spot, if you want to go back over it.
All of these diagrams were made using
MindMeister, which is literally my favorite thing.
Alright. So. That’ll be the end of Part 1.
Click to read Part 2!
I just felt like doing this, it’s not going to be perfect or complete at all:
Arendt: Evil can be banal.
de Beauvoir: Something about ambiguity?
Camus: Life isn’t fair but fuck it, make it your bitch instead while you can.
Descartes: The only certain thought I can have is that I’m thinking, and also some stuff about God.
Epicurus: Pleasure is dope but also complicated?
Foucault: Prisons are fucked, fucking is fucked, and also… uh… acid?
Gadamer: Jesus who knows, that guy is over my head.
Hobbes: Anarchy is shit, therefore totalitarianism.
I… don’t know any philosophers that start with I.
Jaspers: Technology is a fickle mistress?
Kant: I Kant get no satisfaction. Just kidding, uh… the categorical imperative and synthetic a priori blah blah stuff.
Liebniz: This is the best of all possible worlds, and also… other stuff probably.
Marx: Capitalism is fucked.
Nietszche: God is dead and we have killed him, so we need to find a new way to talk about moral issues or we’ll just be totally hosed.
Oppenheimer: is a name that maybe corresponds to a philosopher I have no idea
Pascal? Plutarch? I got nothin on either.
Quine: fucking, like… qua? Do I only think he coined that because they both start with Q?
Rousseau: Uhhh beauty and stuff and also society, honestly I don’t remember.
Sartres: Existentialist broo-haha. What more is there to know, and also it’s a great word.
Thoreau: one should experience nature, and oneself… thoroughly. I’ll go.
Voltaire: Y’all academics are all nuts, don’t @ me.
Wittgenstein: What are words, mannnnn?
Zeno: All movement is basically a math miracle.
That was fun…? I’ll try again with new people sometime for funsies.
