This podcast, entitled “Then & Now: Philosophy, History & Politics,” delivers a rich blend of content focused on the interconnected realms of philosophy, history, and politics. The audio versions of the episodes, sourced from YouTube videos, showcase in-depth explorations of influential philosophical ideas and historical narratives to shed light on contemporary political issues.

The episodes delve into an array of philosophical discussions, offering comprehensive guides to seminal thinkers like Hegel, Kant, and Spinoza. The show often juxtaposes classical philosophical doctrines with modern-day contexts, like Stoicism's relevance today or Nietzschean existentialism. Moreover, it scrutinizes influential political theories and figures, examining democracy's roots, the nature of free will, and the implications of ideology, including criticisms of modern ideological figures such as Jordan Peterson.

History is a recurring theme, with episodes examining significant historical periods and events, assessing their impact on present-day socio-political landscapes. For instance, it analyzes the cultural narratives and historical frameworks that shape political leaders' perspectives, including those of Vladimir Putin. It also considers societal phenomena like addiction, the cultural wars, and the evolution of democracy and technology, emphasizing how historical contexts have molded these concepts.

The political discourse in this podcast is multifaceted, addressing both global and regional issues. It explores the politicization of media, scrutinizes the influence of figures like Tucker Carlson, and critiques the evolving landscape of political ideologies, from wokeism to neoliberalism. Some episodes investigate more niche yet poignant topics, such as the role of the atom bomb in shaping modern consciousness or the intriguing connections between dirt and societal order.

Overall, this podcast offers a thorough and scholarly examination of how philosophy, history, and politics intersect and influence the modern world, providing listeners with a blend of theoretical insights and practical implications.
