Massimo Pigliucci and Me Talking Stoicism on MeaningofLife.TV

I got to have a fantastic chat with Massimo Pigliucci about stoicism. Check it out below:

If you want to watch selected segments, here are direct links to portions of the video where we discussed different distinct topics. For those interested in debates about the legitimacy of a lot of social justice activism, the segment about applying Stoicism to the social sphere connects directly to those issues.

I am also going to spend this month (February 2016) teaching a four week class on Stoic Ethics that will meet February 5, 9, 16, and 23 from 3pm-5pm Eastern. (Essentially it’s a Tuesdays class but the first session will now be on Friday to accommodate a time conflict for one of the students.) There’s still time to sign up if you want to. Just write me at camelswithhammers@gmail.com to let me know you want to join or to ask any questions. If you cannot make the class this month but want me to do it again in the future, please write to let me know that too! For more on how my courses work and a fuller menu of them, see this page.

Bill Maher on Rush Limbaugh, Freedom of Speech, and Misogyny

Last week the right wing spent a lot of time claiming that there was a double standard according to which conservatives like Rush Limbaugh who say offensive things get excoriated in the media, whereas liberals like Bill Maher get a free pass.
