M2E3: Cogito Ergo You Died (Dark Souls and Rationalism)

Philosophiraga: The Video Games and Philosophy Podcast

24-04-2020 • 19 mins

In this episode of Philosophiraga, the gaming and philosophy podcast, we take a look at rationalism. How can we know things without experiencing them? Rationalism has a few suggestions.

Speaking of things we know without having experienced them, the way Dark Souls presents its story is so unlike anything else I've ever come across that I think it's worth talking about.

We discuss intuition, innate knowledge, big ol' dragons, Souls of Lords, and playing games with a banana, all on this episode of Philosophiraga.
