EPISODE 11: What Happens When a Philosopher Has an Identity Crisis? Philosophical Meltdown

Philosophers love to solve complex problems. But what do philosophers do when they have a problem? They write in to an advice column, of course! Well, THIS particular philosopher did. Not only did he write in to advice column, he wrote in to an advice column by and for philosophers: Philosophical Advice from Daniel Fincke.

Charlie (clearly, not a professional philosopher) takes a stab at helping this philosopher with his problem: He’s being called “closed-minded” by friends, family, and strangers on the internet. That’s as bad as it gets for philosophers (who are supposed to be open-minded). What’s a philosopher to do?
