A conversation between Robert Hanna and Scott Heftler


Philosophy Talks, With Bob And Scott is a series of conversations about fundamental philosophical ideas, problems, and topics, from A to Z.

The aim of these conversations is to move us beyond the false dichotomy between Analytic philosophy and so-called “Continental” philosophy–as if there were no other relevant alternatives: but in fact, there is at least one–toward a broadly and radically Kantian philosophy of the future.

This is the fourth episode.

In this episode, we discuss:

1. Research workflow tips from Bob & Kant.

2. The political Right’s cynical strategy for appropriating and inverting the Left’s political rhetoric & terminology.

3. Internal relations vs. external relations.

4. Acquaintance, description, & our knowledge of individuals.

5. Propositional realism, anti-idealism, & determinism.

6. Platonism, empiricism, & the analytic/synthetic distinction.

7. Universal a priori proto-logic & dialetheic logic.

8. Religion, dignity, thought-shapers, & “The Shape of Lives to Come” project.
