Steve Patterson is a philosopher and author working outside of academia. He is also the host of the Patterson in Pursuit podcast, where he has been traveling the world, interviewing intellectuals from various backgrounds on different topics. He's spoken with everybody from professors at Harvard to Buddhist monks in Thailand and Japan. His work covers a range of topics from epistemology and metaphysics, to the philosophy of mathematics, politics, and economics. I was absolutely embroiled in my conversation with Steve....who knew you could get philosophical about mathematics?? Does 2+2 NOT equal 4 in some cases? Steve has the ability and willingness to ask the tough questions in search of truth. Asking these kinds of questions can be extremely uncomfortable, especially if you are questioning a worldview you've known all of your life! But it's absolutely essential if you want to grow your perspective and understanding as a human being. To be human is to search for truth. Learn to be skeptical and to question societies most basic assumptions...it can be scary at first...but you will be better because of it. Get your mind off the conveyor belt. Break free.
