Ep.80 – Inbetweeners – What is Philosophy?

November 16, 2023

In this short, sharp Inbetweener episode, The Occupational Philosophers discuss “What is Philosophy”, after a teenager asked Simon that very question and he struggled a little to answer! He set off to explore and their conversation together highlights just what he uncovered:

  • How ChatGPT can help Philosophy sound cool to a 14-year old teenager
  • Some definitions that help get to the essence of what Philosophy is all about
  • Just how little John and Simon know….rock on Socrates…!
  • The 7 main branches of Philosophy
  • How Philosophy helps challenge beliefs, assumptions and ‘sacred cows’ 
  • Philosophy promotes critical thinking and new lenses to view problems and opportunities
  • How organisations can adopt philosophical thinking to improve creativity, collaboration and innovation
  • The fact that Simon and John cannot pronounce ‘Epistemology’…

FYI: The Inbetweeners episodes are just that – smaller episodes ‘in between’ the longer format episodes designed to give a little kickstart to enable you to be the most curious, creative and imaginative cat you can be – and have some fun in the process.
