The empirical sciences make assumptions that they are not themselves capable of justifying. Philosophy justifies those assumptions; that is its job.

that it was both analytical and understatedly passionate
the part where boris kment is being discussed
she brings out the emotion beneath the books spock-like exterior
the discussion of strawson's expressivism
yes, the analysis of the sociology of philosophical knowledge was blistering and true
It was so skillfully written, almost poetic, but focused at the same time
sensitive and yet intelligent; the narrator understood the material but also made it breathe
she is always good
the two different roles of sense perception in the acquisition of knowledge
the author is beyond brilliant, and I don't know why the narrator isn't famous. they're both cracking good.
"the truth about philosophy and philosophy departme"
yes, I had to hear it to realize how good it is
no comparison; kuczynski is the only philosopher who is a psychoanalyst and the only psychoanalyst who is a philosopher.
the talent of a true actress, a real actress, like glenn close or betty davis
the sociology of truth
if you are thinking of going to grad school in philosophy, read this book.
"best philosophical work on audible"
yes. it is so gracefully written, which you don't realize until you hear it.
schopenhauer's essays, because they are both thoughtful and literary
she hit every note right on the nose. just perfect!
yes. long but never, ever boring. every sentence was just perfect. it flowed.
a truly great work. i'm hooked on this author!
"A perfect work, perfectly narrated"
I learned about epistemology, sociology, and psychology in one sitting!
It was both logical and human.
She is always brilliant. She seems very at home with Kuczynski's work, even though she is known for her acting.
The part about how philosophy departments are really anti-philosophy departments.
this book is the work of a master, and the narrator is truly a giant.
it was so smoothly reasoned, so well narrated, every word was just where it was supposed to be. and the narration...just fabulous!
the discussion of the 'triggering' role of sense-perception in the acquisition of knowledge
well worth it
