The unexamined life is not worth living – Socratic Method discussion
Yes you can, but you have to start by taking small action every day.
Hello my beautiful people,
Today in today’s video I want you to meet Jason Skirry, a philosopher and professor of philosophy at University of St. Thomas.
His passion is bringing people to together and using philosophical principles to examine our lives since we all know that unexamined life is not worth living (Socrates). This interview is full of golden nuggets. Jason starts telling us that the first step to knowledge is to admit that you don’t know everything. (powerful!)
We discuss the Socratic method – aimed to give rise to knowledge through conversation and social interaction. We also learn how philosophy explains why we get irritated when someone questions our beliefs.
What does philosophy say about role models and us being reflected in others? And, why anger is the belief that you have been harmed and how that emotion can be changed. I hope you get as much out of it as much as I did.
Please watch and let me know what you think!

In case you haven’t noticed, we have the best productivity and time saving tools we have ever had and we have never been this busy, overwhelmed and anxious. What’s the answer? You have to resist the notion that you have to follow the herd
