Website Wednesday

Website Wednesday is a regular feature in which we highlight one (or a couple) of sites from the Billions floating around the Intertoobz that just might help you with your Herculean task of educating inquiring minds. Any and all suggestions for future editions are welcome.

Oh, boy, are you all in for a treat. Call me a nerd, call me an egg head, call me whatever you want (just don’t call me late to dinner, ba-dum-shaaa), but I haven’t been this excited to get the next episode in a series since I became viciously, crushingly (and so, so satisfyingly) addicted to The Wire.

What series is that you ask? The Ten Minute Puzzle.

Presenting, a series of ten-minute (who doesn’t have ten minutes?), introductory podcasts to some of the greatest, coolest, most thought provoking philosophical conundrums ever, with quick, clear explanations of the problem, its history, and the attempts to resolve the puzzle, right up to the contemporary moment.

Great, great stuff.

  1. Fantastic. Is it weird to say that I love the Liar paradox. I was hoping to see Zeno’s and Russell’s (barber) paradoxen (my invented plural of paradox).

    • I can’t imagine that one of those isn’t in the initial series of ten…(I’m hoping for Zeno, too).

          • So far–they’re posting every three weeks, I think (excepting July). Though, #7 was the Sorites Paradox, so they might veer away from another. I’d offer a wager to you, but we’re on the same side, so that won’t work.

            I guess we’ll just have to hope…
