Today's guest is among the increasing number of bright young people who have come to view the traditional college path as an opportunity cost.

In addition to running Virtual Assistant Academy and KettlebellMovement.com, Emily works as a Sales Funnel Strategist helping entrepreneurs to grow their business and generate revenue and leads using sales funnels and Facebook Ads. As a very busy young mother, she also actively promotes the freedom of working from home and controlling your schedule. Learn more about Emily's work at emilyhirsh.com. She joins me today to discuss - dealing with the pressure to stay in college - our differences and what they mean - is the entrepreneurial drive something you either have or don't have? - goal-setting and business plans - confronting feelings of overwhelm - time management and block scheduling - finding the right business and life partner - Emily's thoughts on the current state of higher education

Our investigation into the philosophical roots of social justice continues... Daniel Bonevac is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. He joins us today to discuss Jacques Derrida and how postmodernism manifests itself in some of the ugly developments in higher education. We also explore the potential dangers of hyper-skepticism. Dr. Bonevac's research focuses on the intersection of metaphysics, philosophical logic, and ethics. His first book, Reduction in the Abstract Sciences, received the Johnsonian Prize from The Journal of Philosophy. He has written four other books-- Deduction, The Art and Science of Logic, Simple Logic, and Worldly Wisdom. His website is a great resource; check out all his articles, courses and books at philosophical.space Discussed: - Postmodernism didn't have to turn out this way - Jean-François Lyotard: incredulity towards meta-narratives - no overall view of the world is possible? - Jacques Derrida and Deconstruction - Kant's influence - 'the appearances' - Phenomenology - Hegel and "the myth of the given" - The missing explanation argument - Scientific Realism - Ayn Rand vs. postmodernism - how did postmodernism get such a hold on academia - Freud and the Hermeneutics of Suspicion - why is this suspicion and skepticism so appealing? - hyper-skepticism is ultimately boring - the postmodern path to Marxism?

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
