Carter is joined by special guest Dr. Stephen Hicks for a speedy romp through 200 years of philosophy in search of some of the philosophic errors that manifest in today’s “woke” culture. Dr. Hicks provides an overview of the Enlightenment, the counter-Enlightenment, the Frankfurt school, and postmodernism. You’ll want to experience this episode more than once.
Dr. Stephen Hicks is a Professor of Philosophy at Rockford University, Illinois, the Executive Director of the Center for Ethics and Entrepreneurship, and Senior Scholar at The Atlas Society. He’s the author of six books, including his forthcoming book “Eight Philosophies of Education,” as well as what Carter calls a “must-read” for anyone interested in unraveling the philosophical roots of modern Leftistm: “Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault.” He’s published in several academic journals, including Business Ethics Quarterly, Teaching Philosophy, and Review of Metaphysics, as well as other publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Cato Unbound, and The Baltimore Sun. He’s also the host of the Open College podcast.
