The New Thinkery

Dec 8, 2021

The guys are joined this week by Greg's colleague at Ashland University, Dr. Christopher Burkett. The group take a break from the stuffy philosophy books, and turn instead to the silver screen to analyze the Western genre, and specifically Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch (1969) and John Ford's The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence (1962). Don't fret! Westerns, and these films in particular, are replete with philosophic underpinnings ready to be illuminated.
