Philosophy roughly translates to the love of wisdom; a definition broad enough to encompass a subject whose corner stones lie in figuring out pretty much everything about life. Join us on this first episode where open our mind to the Philosophical method. One where we abondon the preconceived and start from nothing, learn to question everything and the method to answer anything. Once you’ve tasted this way, there is no other way.
Life is full of tough choices. At every point we are torn between doing the right thing and doing the easy thing. But wait, how do we know what is right? What’s the purpose of being a good person? We embark on a journey with all our superheroes to find out if at the end of they day, we all behave like Kants.
Have you ever felt certain about something? If you did, would you consider that knowledge? But then, what is the difference between knowledge and belief?

Is superman a human being or a person? Have you ever considered what is your “Identity” and what are the factors that shape it. A soul-shaking, identity revealing two hour session on Identity and personhood.
The season finale begins with the question “Can human intelligence be algorithmised?” By philosophically analysing the constituents of human existence, we try and understand how one would create machines that are not just capable of complex human thought but are acutely aware of their own existence. Can Skynet be real and are we all going to get blasted into oblivion by Cyborg Schwarzenegger? We’ll find out.
