Is language capable of communicating experience? Looking for a link we mentioned? It's here: https://linktr.ee/philosophyforourtimesWe think sharing experience is essential to being human. At an individual level, we share experiences to get to know others and understand them. Yet from the taste of an apple to giving birth, we know we cannot fully describe the experience to someone who has not already had it. Many now also maintain that it is impossible to communicate the experience of discrimination, and other cultures can only be understood by those who have experienced it. But even if it remains an impossible task - for language to truly bridge our separate realities - should it nevertheless remain something that is continually strived for?Professor of Black Studies at Birmingham City University Kehinde Andrews, linguist and Associate Professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University John McWhorter, and Professor of philosophy and cognitive science at Yale University Laurie Ann Paul discuss whether or not language is capable of communicating lived experience.

Who was Hermes Trismegistus and what are his teachings? What can we learn today from this esoteric wisdom that withstood the passage of time, kept alive for thousands of years? Polymath Robert Edward Grant is a wealth of wisdom in a great many fields, and today he came on the podcast to explore these very questions. We dive into the seven hermetic principles as described by the Kybalion, one of the great foundational esoteric teachings from whence we source quotes such as ‘As above; So below.' As well as this deep dive into the Kybalion, Robert decodes other profound esoteric teachings rooted in other ancient sources, such as The Dead Sea Scrolls, The Book Of Enoch, The Emerald Tablets, The Epic Of Gilgamesh, and many other related works.

Lexitecture is a podcast about etymology (the linguistics study of the origin and history of words). In each episode, a Canadian (Ryan) and a Scot (Amy) each present their current favourite word and talk about its origins, current use, and try to puzzle out how it may have gone from A to B.
