Continuing on Experience and Nature (1925), through ch. 4.

We focus here on how philosophy supposedly gets warped by fear and desire in human nature, how we pretend that abstractions we've created are metaphysically real and basic. So how do the objects of our experience, then, relate to those of science? And can we talk about "ends" (teleology) when doing science? Learn more about the topic and get the book. Listen to part one first, or get the ad-free Citizen edition.

End song: "Uncontrollable Fear" by The MayTricks from So Chewy! (1993), written/sung by Steve Petrinko. Get the album free.
