1. Basics of reasoning: deduction, validity, and soundness.
Basics of reasoning: deduction, validity, and soundness.
Philosophy, and reasoning in general, is all about arguments. No, not the kinds of arguments you and your spouse have about whose responsibility it was to take the garbage out last night - a more specialized kind of argument. In philosophy, an argument is a line of reasoning that takes us from pr...

2. Just what is the Socratic method?
Just what is the Socratic method?
Socrates was a man who lived in Athens in the 5th century BC, during the so-called "Golden Age of Athens." He is considered one of the founders of Western thought, which is to say: he is a pretty big deal! In fact, his epoch-making stature in philosophy is so great that all of the philosophers wh...

3. Does God exist? The cosmological argument.
Does God exist? The cosmological argument.
The question of God's existence is one of the perennial features of the philosophical landscape. Some of the biggest names in the history of philosophy, science, and religion have been engrossed with this question, and the result is a vast and varied corpus of work on the subject. One of the most...

4. Just what is philosophy?
Just what is philosophy?
There is a kind of contradiction at the heart of philosophy both ancient and modern. Philosophers often hold the lofty attitude that what they are doing is of supreme importance, but when faced with the simple question, "what is it that you actually do," they are flummoxed. Yes, the very question...

5. Does God exist? The teleological argument.
Does God exist? The teleological argument.
The existence of God: it is one of the central and most pressing musings of mankind. Some of the best minds in philosophy, religion, and science have contributed to the discussion, and we are left with an impressive corpus of arguments for and against God's existence. One of the most famous of th...

6. A tiny history of Western music.
A tiny history of Western music.
If you've got your headphones in and they're blaring the latest trip-hop, folktronica, dubstep remix of your favorite '80s-revival garage synth-pop song, it may feel like Beethoven didn't have anything to do with that. Well, amateur history buffs (like myself!) would probably disagree. No one - i...

7. Does God exist? The ontological argument.
Does God exist? The ontological argument.
The existence of God has long been a lively subject of debate. Theologians, philosophers, scientists, and even ordinary folk like you and I have been pondering this most monumental of questions since pretty much day one. Well, many arguments for and against God's existence have been catalogued th...

8. Does God exist? Pascal's wager.
Humans have been debating the existence of God (or gods) ever since there have been humans to debate. I have already written guides to some of the major arguments in favor of God's existence (see the section below), but there are also innumerable side currents of thought regarding this problem. O...

9. Let Bryan Magee introduce you to Western philosophy.
So you want to study philosophy, huh? That's great, but...where to begin? There is a lot of philosophy out there, and some of it looks really hard to dig into to (I'm looking at you, Hegel). Should you just pick a philosopher and dive right in? What if you don't have a good enough grasp of the so...

10. A tiny history of presocratic philosophy.
Quick - name the oldest philosopher you can think of. Unless you're a specialist, you probably came up with a name like Socrates, Plato, or Aristotle. Of course, I've mentioned before that those guys are pretty much the all-star team of ancient philosophy, but you might be surprised to learn that...

11. Ten art house films for the budding cinephile.
If you've spent any time around film nerds, you've probably heard the term "art house" thrown around a bit. Well, no one can precisely define what makes a film an art film, but one thing is certain - the world of art cinema can be pretty overwhelming for the uninitiated. These aren't the films sh...

12. A tiny history of ice cream.
Find me someone who doesn't like ice cream. Go on, I'll wait. Actually I won't wait, because you'll be looking for a long time. Everybody loves this stuff! In fact, Americans consume about 1.5 billion gallons of ice cream each year - that's about five gallons per person. But where did this froze...

13. esvoytko's lensography
Hello world! My name is Eric and this is my lensography. It's looking pretty skimpy right now but I will update it diligently as I publish more lenses. I have tried to group many of my lenses into cohesive series, which allows me to cover a complex topic in a number of different bite-sized bits. ...
