I went in to this interview with Peter Boghossian sincerely not knowing what to expect. He’s a professor of philosophy at Portland State College, and my entire knowledge of philosophy comes from a single class I took freshman year of college which, to be frank, did not go well.
But I loved Peter’s take on why philosophy is important and how it can actually be applied to help society at large.
His book is called A Manual for Creating Atheists, and I’m sincerely looking forward to picking it up.
He’s a really cool, super-intense, obviously-smart guy with a lot of interesting ideas. It also ended up being one of the most atheism-heavy interviews I had (as opposed to one focused on pseudoscientific or paranormal topics).
