Episode four of the Permanent Evolution Podcast, in which Sympathetic People, Dr Joha Coludar and Dr Timothy Jackson, indulge in a wide-ranging discussion covering topics including war as a selection pressure, human exceptionalism, free will, science as a reactionary philosophy, and the problem of certainty.
Episode two of the Permanent Evolution Podcast.
Part 1 – Morals and the Louis C.K. case study; are we becoming more moral? is there progress in history?
Part 2 – Cultural evolution continued; can a complex world view be coherent?
Part 3 – Is reality coherent? Is “evolution” just another catch-all metaphor?
When Joha says “immoral”, it sometimes sounds like he’s saying “moral”……
Teleology is “goal-directed by knowledge”, as opposed to teleonomy – “goal-directed by law”.
All music and field-recordings/soundscapes by Tim.
