Episode 00: Preface, Part II
Ergo Sum is a podcast about… philosophy. Mostly. No, ummm… Ok. Bear with me. euristic, adjective. - enabling a person to discover or learn something for themselves. The word ‘heuristic’ has different definitions in different fields and industries. Before we explore the ways I mean it; do any of you guys use it professionally? Fittingly, the word, like the story we're outlining, starts with the ancient greek/pre-greek; /heu̯.rís.kɔː/ → /eˈβris.ko/ → /eˈvris.ko/ I happen upon by chance, find I find out, discover I acquire, fetch, obtain So a heuristic tool or device is a construct to better our odds of happening upon, of discovering, of acquiring knowledge or understanding. What I mean, for our purposes, is that the podcast itself has become a tool to help me learn and do philosophy. Find out more at https://ergo-sum.pinecast.co This podcast is powered by Pinecast.

Episode 00: Preface - Part I
Ergo Sum is a podcast about… philosophy. Mostly. No, ummm… Ok. Bear with me. I struggled a lot to write this preface. It’s been hard to pick any one angle on something as abstract and personal as the study of philosophy. Creating a narrative around an ongoing experience is a complicated logistical challenge. Sort of an uncertainty/indeterminacy principle situation; I know where I’m at, but not where I’m going. I’m still discovering what the podcast is. Let me try to give you a snapshot anyway.
