The Great Everything

112 EpisodesProduced by Patrick D.Website

"An Encyclopaedia of Being"What is good? How should we live? Who should we be? What does it all mean? Lawyer-turned-philosophist Patrick Daniel explores life’s most urgent questions, and how great thinkers, artists, and ordinary people, have attempted to answer them.


Origin Story: Where Do We Come From?

Where does the world come from? The Bible, Greek myths, to cosmological accounts of the Big Bang, we've been grappling with the question of our origin since the dawn of civilisation. But when did our approach to this question transition from the religious to the scientific? In this episode of The Great Everything, I explore the ideas of Thales, Anaximander and Anaximenes, the first to come up with rational theories about the creation and constitution of our world. As such, today these 'pre-Socratics' are heralded as the first philosophers, and the original scientists.
