Whether you realize it or not, you operate according to a worldview. Your thoughts, emotions, and behavior are all influenced by your understanding of the world, and therefore, that worldview determines your quality of life. If that concept sounds interesting, and if you enjoy it MY ago philosophically conversations with my friend Pat Flynn, you’ll enjoy this podcast.
Pat is a repeat guest not only because I find our discussions entertaining, but I get a lot of feedback from listeners who want to hear about these deeper, philosophical topics that we go through. Furthermore, I believe that examining these “big” questions can help us live better lives.
Not only is Pat a fitness guru with a knack for kettlebells, but he’s an author, philosopher, and host of several podcasters. In particular, his Philosophy For The People The podcast aims to break down difficult ideas and make them more accessible, so he is the perfect guest to discuss these health topics.
In our discussion, we talked about . . .
- What is worldview and why is it important
- The fallacy of Bulverism
- Personal responsibility and how much you can change your worldview
- The problem of evil and whether suffering is necessary
- How to understand scenarios involving “fighting experts”
- And many more. . .
So, if you haven’t thought much about your worldview, want to know more about what it is and why it’s important, or if any of this makes you curious, listen to it that podcast!
