Episode IV: Nature, Natural Ends, and the Enlightenment (Part 1) by The Josias Podcast published on 2017-12-11T02:38:54Z Do rocks have purpose? Are they essentially headed somewhere? What about plants? Humans? The stars? In this episode we touch on a bunch of questions related to the idea that the universe is ordered and things have intrinsic ends. The episode kicks off with some awesome music taken from the film Koyaanisqatsi, and continues with a riveting discussion of Aristotle, celestial bodies, and the implications of the idea of intrinsic ends for our worldview at large.
