This edition of The Freed Thinker Podcast we take a break from our presentation of my book review of David McAfee’s book Disproving God and give the first part of what will ultimately be a 5 part series on the questions of moral philosophy. I am joined by my friends Nicholas Bruzzese from The Skeptics Testament (and who has been a guest on the show before) and new comer to the show Brandon Christian, who many of your may recognize from the TST facebook page.
In this first episode we introduce ourselves and give some of our background and then we survey some of the preliminary concepts that will be needed to navigate through this series.
As a sneak preview this is the content for the next 4 shows:
Episode 2: Tyler argues for Objective Moral Realism
Episode 3: Nicholas argues for Contextualism
Episode 4: Brandon argues for Nihilism…ish.
Episode 5: We respond to YOUR comments and questions! (so keep them coming!)
For resources on this book I recommend the following books (later episodes I’ll recommend books, podcasts, and online articles for a little more variety)
Moral Philosophy: A Reader ed. by Pojman
Moral Relativism and Moral Objectivity by Gilbert Harman and Judith Jarvis Thomson
