8-Bit Philosophy: Answering humanity’s most important questions in 256 colors
The guys over at Wisecrack have created one of the most compelling videos collections I’ve seen. The group – a media collective run by comedians, academics, filmmakers and artists – attempts to answer humanity’s most important questions using 8-bit graphics and constant awesome game references.
The videos themselves are great, with some of the most complex philosophical problems explained with such ease that it makes me re-think how much better I could have done in my philosophy classes if these had been around at the time (Heideger, I’m looking at you). Anyway, it’s never too late.
You can check the complete channel and watch all videos, for free of course, here. Don’t miss their other playlists: Thug Notes (on literature) and The Hidden Meaning (of movies) among others.
