Digging through the archives, I came across an old panel from last year where I asked the question of who would people like to have interviewed on Cake. One of the most intriguing suggestions was to interview a renowned Philosophy professor.
I know we have close to four hundred people following the topic of Philosophy, however, I rarely if ever see discussions started on it. And it seems a shame to interview someone, open it up to audience Q&A
and then crickets.
I think when the pandemic exploded in February and March, we all shifted to a Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs where our focus and conversations shifted to immediate needs.
However, with more of the world reopening I’ve noticed a return to a greater range of discussions on Cake. And it has me now wondering if there currently is sufficient interest for discussions on philosophy. I’ll admit to being a neophyte in this area: a reading and a re-reading of Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is the closest I’ve come to serious study. But I would be interested in learning from more learned minds and I might even contribute to such a conversation if I had a thought worthy of sharing.
