Diet Soap Podcast #173: Lost With Hegel

There is not a guest this week. Instead my son Benjamin and I discuss Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit. The section on The Realisation of Rational Self-Consciousness through its Own Activity is seen through the television program Lost.

For those of you who haven’t watched the show, Lost is, per wikipedia “an American television series that was originally aired on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) from September 22, 2004 to May 23, 2010, consisting of six seasons. Lost is a drama series containing elements of science fiction and the supernatural that follows the survivors of the crash of a commercial passenger jet flying between Sydney and Los Angeles, on a mysterious tropical island somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean.”

We also discussed the XKCD comic entitled Lego.

This week I want to thank my regular subscribers for their continuing donations to the podcast, and I want to urge everyone listening to donate, to follow me on Facebook, and join the new Diet Soap International Facebook group. Upcoming episodes of Diet Soap will include conversations with David Blacker and Michael Karman from Asymmetry Music Magazine.

The music you’re listening to right now is Locke’s Theme from the television show Lost. In just a moment you’ll be listening to Benjamin and I discuss Rational Self-Consciousness through our Own Activity. dietsoap173
