Enlightenment Defended
Politics • Spirituality/Belief • Culture
Enlightenment Defended will repel the dark nihilism of “post-truth”, woke culture, identity politics, and political correctness. It will catalyse the bright flame of the enlightenment —liberty, reason and progress.

Enlightenment Defended will create an open realm of vigorous philosophical debate through animation, documentaries, poetry, humour, music and myth. People are many-sided in both apprehension and enjoyment.

Liberty Loves Reason: Episode 1. All Life is Problem Solving.

Savour this deep dive into the philosophy behind the events and movements of our times.

It is the first episode of 7 in the serialisation of my documentary. The documentary views the enlightenment in terms of Karl Popper's evolutionary analysis of knowledge.

This episode sets the stage for understanding why political correctness and woke ideology is anathema to the possibilities of progress, which is a matter of the growth of knowledge through solving problems.

All life is problem-solving. Problems in all spheres are solved by various analogues of conjecture and refutation. Many competing guesses are made, and this is followed by the weeding-out of those guesses that don't match an appropriate standard. Problem-solving is at the core of the growth of all knowledge, from the simple amoeba to Einstein's breakthroughs in science. And this growth of knowledge is at the core of the enlightenment.

However, woke ideology and its regressive henchman, political correctness and identity politics, are constraining this fundamental process of open conjecture and refutation.

Featuring David Deutsch FRS and Professor Paul Levinson.
Narrators: Lulie Tanett & Edward Crumblehulme.
