Western Philosophy (2002)

 

 

Populated with a mixed bag of experts, with competencies ranging from ancient philosophy and religious thought to more contemporary philosophical ideas and problems, ‘Western Philosophy’ chooses to trace the evolution of (western) philosophy from classical Greece, its development in Europe through the medieval period and the enlightenment into modern existentialist thought. This audio-visual asks ‘what is philosophy, why it is important’, and examines its intricate relationship with religion, spirituality, and the sciences. Has its moments and misses – probably not a bad way to spend three hours of your precious time. Or should I say, being and time. Split into three parts.

I am primarily interested in the fundamental differences between Western philosophies and Eastern ways of knowing? (Generally, how does each culture view the world and education?) How can one incorporate seemingly different ways of knowing … wish there was something like this for Eastern ways of knowing as well…

I am not a philo bug, but i really think philo is under-rated as a discipline nowadays, espe in india.. when one can study management who needs to study philosophy? i personally feel philo informs all subjects, therefore it is relevant to all.

Good and informative. Better than sitting in on a bored to death lecture.

I am an undergraduate student in philosophy, and am considering applying to graduate school. However, I am at a loss as to how research takes place in philosophy. All the graduate schools say that one must demonstrate “potential for philosophical research” as part of the application process. Still digging around for that. Ah well another day in Paradise.

At first I thought this was a documentary of Russels HIstory of Western Philo. lol. Some bits are good, while some speakers are pretty dull.
