Friend of the Gutter Mark D. White appears on the Seize The Moment podcast to discuss Thor, worthiness and philosophy! “On episode 127, we welcome philosopher Mark White to discuss the philosophy of Thor; how his hammer was used to distinguish and judge worthiness; the similarities and differences between the various schools of ethics–virtue ethics, deontology, and utilitarianism; the golden mean of virtue ethics and its allowance of moral imperfection; the necessity of self-doubt to moral character and the balance of maintaining it with a sense of pride; the importance of not taking your partner for granted and continuing to improve; and Thor’s epiphany and love of humanity, exploring how they differentiated him from other gods.” Listen here.
I cannot help but think of the movie ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING…anyone who has seen it knows what I mean. 😉
