Best. Philosophy Video. Evar.

I've been compiling some resources for A Level Philosophy students this week, and I can't believe this is the first time I've seen this. It's stark raving genius, though I fear it may do for philosophy what Trapped in the Closet did for R&B.

Anyway, enjoy this take on Plato's allegory of the cave. I know I did.

I really like the 'Philosophy Bites' podcast which can be found in iTunes. They are short introductions to various aspects of philosophy and only last around 15 minutes each. They keep subjects clear and (relatively) simple.

They don't do the swan joke do they? That was the point at which I knew I had become institutionalised...

That was a thing of beauty and a joy to the eye. I think they borrowed the speaker from Shubel Morgan though. ;)

It does have a good beat, I'll admit. Was that anything to do with Adam Freeland by any chance?

I suppose I'd want to amend it with 'hate the ruling class of the USA and their imperialist policies' but you just can't dance to it so much, can you?
