This is relevant to my interests in the same way that a peanut butter cup is relevant to peanut butter and chocolate.

I good presentation of various general views on each problem. They are, of course, all wrong, but there's nothing wrong with that.

Very helpful.

Are you saying the videos are wrongly presenting the views of the various philosophers? If so, what are the errors?

Or that the views presented are wrong? If so, in what way?

This was very cool. I would be happy to see "Explain it to me in 8-Bit" become the new "Explain it to me like I'm 8."
