Sometimes it seems it’s gone too far. The way people are judged for speaking their minds, often if they haven’t even said anything particularly extreme. At the same time, it’s definitely possible to go too far in the other direction, which rightwing buffoons need to acknowledge more often. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/wade-wainio/sup…

When philosophers have approached virtual reality, they have almost always done so through the lens of metaphysics, asking questions about the reality of virtual items and worlds, about the value of such things, and indeed, about how they may reshape our understanding of the “real” world.
