Philosophy File

Last night I uploaded the 8th video of my little foray into philosophy, Philosophy File.

The video was about metacognition and the ancient story of Gilgamesh.

That is the final video in the series, at least for now.

We may expand the idea after further consideration... so stay subscribed on YouTube.

Here are all the videos, created with the philosophers at The University of Nottingham:

  1. The thing I love about this video is that it would never have occurred to me that a story without metacognition could even exist! How fascinating that is! Maybe the ancient Babylonians were people who felt meta-cognition was wrong in some way, maybe because it's such a font of deceitfulness, and the Tower of Babel was really about lying becoming a huge part of human cultures, or something.

    Or maybe they were a whole civilization of Aspergery people whose brains didn't model other people's thoughts well.

    It's really interesting to speculate about. I like thinking about what they were thinking by not showing people thinking about what other people were thinking. =D
