Description (podcaster-provided):

The Partially Examined Life is a podcast by some guys who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it. Each episode, we pick a short text and chat about it with some balance between insight and flippancy. You don't have to know any philosophy, or even to have read the text we're talking about to (mostly) follow and (hopefully) enjoy the discussion. For links to the texts we discuss and other info, check out www.partiallyexaminedlife.com.
We also feature episodes from other podcasts by our hosts to round out your partially examined life, including Pretty Much Pop (prettymuchpop.com, covering all media), Nakedly Examined Music (nakedlyexaminedmusic.com, deconstructing songs), Philosophy vs. Improv (philosophyimprov.com, fun with performance skills and philosophical ideas), and (sub)Text (subtextpodcast.com, looking deeply at lit and film). Learn about more network podcasts at partiallyexaminedlife.com.


Themes and summary (AI-generated based on podcaster-provided show and episode descriptions):

➤ Philosophical texts and discussions • Religious experience • Justified true belief and knowledge • Classical and modern philosophers • Daoism and ethical life • Music discussions and band history • Film analysis and cultural critique • Practical philosophy and identity

The Partially Examined Life Philosophy Podcast delivers a rich array of philosophical discussions, blending insightful analysis with a touch of flippancy. The podcast is hosted by individuals who initially set out to pursue philosophy as a profession but ultimately chose different paths. Despite this, their passion for philosophy remains evident in their engaging conversations.

Each episode typically revolves around a specific philosophical text or theme, which the hosts dissect with the aim of making complex ideas accessible to listeners, regardless of their prior knowledge of philosophy. The scope of topics covered is notably broad, encompassing classical philosophical works, contemporary issues, and interdisciplinary discussions.

Recurring themes include the exploration of foundational philosophical questions such as the nature of knowledge, being, and reality. For instance, episodes delve into the works of renowned philosophers like Aristotle, Kierkegaard, and Zhuangzi, examining their perspectives on ethics, existence, and metaphysics. The podcast also investigates the intersection of philosophy with other disciplines, such as religion, through examinations of texts like William James' "The Varieties of Religious Experience."

In addition to philosophical texts, the show features discussions on music, film, literature, and popular culture, often presented through episodes from other podcasts by the hosts, such as Nakedly Examined Music and Pretty Much Pop. These segments not only broaden the philosophical discourse but also consider the philosophical dimensions of creative and cultural expressions.

Furthermore, the podcast does not shy away from engaging with contemporary philosophical debates and practical philosophical applications. Topics such as personal identity, ethics in modern society, and the implications of philosophical theories in everyday life are recurrently explored.

Overall, The Partially Examined Life offers a diverse and thoroughly engaging platform for philosophical inquiry, balancing depth with approachability and a sense of humor.
