M2E2: Not A Coronavirus Episode (World of Warcraft and Making Inferences)

Philosophiraga: The Video Games and Philosophy Podcast

21-03-2020 • 21 mins

In this... slightly out-of-schedule episode of Philosophiraga, we take a look at something that happened in World of Warcraft many years ago, and discuss whether it's relevant to things happening in the real world today.

One correction: I said in the show that 'post hoc ergo propter hoc' translates to 'with this therefore because of this'. That would actually be 'cum hoc ergo propter hoc'; 'post hoc' is after rather than with. The two phrases are pretty much interchangeable, but I still got the translation wrong!

If you're a fan of the show, I'm given to understand that feeding the algorithms by leaving ratings or reviews on Apple Podcasts or Podchaser is a super helpful thing you can do, so... go do that. Thanks!
