Cuck Philosophy on Youtube (the name is misleading---the channel is leftist) has been best phil Youtuber so far. I know a lot of people like Olly, but Cuck Philosophy is a bit more in-depth while still being understandable. Really like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzQZ_NDEzVo Altho I disagree only slightly since thought-out political theory tends to have a thick, robust notion of equality. Liberalism tends to hold to a highly abstract verison of the notion tho, true.
@mrjunge I really love Cuck Philosophy!
@abs I need to make a phil yt channel, but I can barely handle keeping up a blog so..
@mrjunge I would watch it! There aren't enough good one out there.
@JoeyK @abs Yes! Bataille is about the only person I think gives a compelling account of "human nature" if there ever was one--which isn't to say this is even his intention, but that I could see his theories being used to arm a convincing case in that direction. Most of his discussion of humanity v. animality is in the context of structuralism, so it's more a theory of subjective structures that are nonetheless able to be accounted for in facts about our embodiment.
I know there's some value in trying to reclaim words but yeesh
@dulcet Yeah, a lot of people had said similarly. In fact, the ambiguity of the channel name made me hesitate about the quality of the content and it took me a while to just check it out. Lol
Ambiguity is right. It's worth running a name by disinterested parties or risk misunderstanding the connotations of your brand.
@mrjunge saw his vids in suggested recently and clicked out of interest
was pleasantly surprised
@artemirl Same. His channel inspires me a bit, especially since he does some of those more silly vids like the one analyzing Shrek. Lol
We are a cute and loving international community Ｏ(≧▽≦)Ｏ !
