'Ello! My name is Joseph, I'm 20, I love listening to blink-182 and I'm a really big nerd who is majoring in English and Philosophy. Welcome To Night Vale is probably one of my favorite things on the internet and I feel that more people should listen to it; I think they'd be surprised by how quickly it grows on them. When I'm not watching Doctor Who, have my nose in a Brian Greene book or spreading the word about Spinoza's works, I'm either speed running Dark Souls, playing Legend of Zelda, beating the Elite Four for the hundredth time, level grinding in Final Fantasy or playing Resident Evil. I post what ever catches my eye, but mainly about video games and Doctor Who. Feel free to ask me anything :)
In 1973, Hannah Arendt became the first woman to speak at the prestigious Gifford Lectures — an annual series established in 1888 aiming “to promote and diffuse the study of natural theology in the widest sense of the term,” bridging science, philosophy, and spirituality. Titled The Life of the Mind, her lecture, later expanded into a book, is a spectacular meditation on thinking vs. knowing and the difference between truth and meaning.
