I’ve featured Crash Course videos before. The Green brothers (and collaborators such as Phil Plait) manage to take various subjects such as history, astronomy, politics, biology, and others many might find dry and boring, and make them interesting. Each episode is relatively short (usually under 15 minutes) but cover a lot in that time, edited to move along at a hyper and fun rate.
If you’ve read articles and posts on various philosophical topics, were mildly interested, but never felt it worth investing the time to read books on it, then their new series on philosophy might be just the thing:
The grouping of Ethics and Aesthetics together under “Value Theory” is interesting. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen that before, but it makes sense in many ways, although I can see people who think they should be approached completely differently disagreeing.
I’m sure the videos will be a repeat of stuff I’ve already read, but I plan to watch them anyway, as I’ve gotten new and valuable information from other basic sources such as Stephen West’s excellent podcast: Philosophize This.
