Academia is a terrible place to go if you are sincerely interested in ideas -- at least, that's the claim behind Steve Patterson's pursuit to find truth and explicate it.

Steve is a non-academic, non-PhD professional philosopher pursuing ideas outside of the university system. Steve joins me to discuss his background, training, why he chose to work outside of academia, and the decline of the pursuit of ideas in the institution. We also discuss the replication crisis in academia, how to get started interviewing intellectual heavyweights, and Steve's plan for the future.

Steve can be found at steve-patterson.com. He is the author of Square One, which I review here: https://zakslayback.com/2017/01/01/review-square-one-foundations-knowledge-steve-patterson/
