我已经 absent from this space for a couple of weeks now, which is not my normal way of managing the blog. The thing is, 我已经 spending most of my available time experimenting with communication through another medium: video. In this 的YouTube and Vimeo day and age, many of you suggested that I did that. So I thought I'd give it a try, even as a way to balance out the manner in which I communicate: so far, it has been almost entirely in written form, except for the couple of radio interviews I give each month. In this spirit, I want to share with you here the early results of my initiative. Here are the two first-released videos (episodes one and five) of an interview series encompassing eight videos, six of which are yet to be finished over the coming months. The first video, above, basically lays some ground work for what follows, by attempting to dispel the myth that science has (almost) explained all reality and, therefore, philosophy (particularly metaphysics) is no longer needed.
