Functional Philosophy #104

(1) Freedom & Fallibility (2) Concepts & Communication

In this episode of Functional Philosophy, I answer the following questions:

00:39 - "How does an objectivist framework deal with ignorance? What if people don’t know the extent that sugary sodas or climate change would impact their life and therefore incorrectly evaluate their individual value? What if the global Illuminati have the best information and just make that judgement for everyone under the assumption of ignorance?"

07:44 - "You use words defined in one way, while others use same words with different meaning. What is the best strategy to communicate then? Better to redefine words or create new words and avoid previously held connotations? Is there a general objectivist Communication strategy?"

Functional Philosophy is the weekly Q&A podcast that helps you gain and strengthen the philosophical foundations required to achieve certainty, success, and happiness.
