Episode 14 – The Hellenistic Age Pt. 5 – A Race to the Dark Ages


On this episode of the podcast, we discuss Middle Platonism and the Race to the Dark Ages. We learn how Philo of Alexandria reconciled Judaism with Plato’s vision of God as a master craftsman, and find out how this relates to building an IKEA bookcase. We also discuss the important distinction Plutarch made between a flatterer and a friend, and why he would have absolutely hated Facebook. All this and more on the latest episode of Philosophize This!

Philosophize This! Look at all of the important relationships in your life. How many of those people would look at you and say that you pass Plutarch’s test. How many people would truly consider you a friend? Answer below in the comments.
