An 8-Bit Guide to Plato, Hegel and Nietzsche

July 21, 2014 | Sophie Weiner

The YouTube channel Thug Notes usually comments on famous great works of literature but has branched out into exploring philosophy. 8-Bit Philosophy explains philosophical concepts like “Is anything real?” and “Do we enjoy being free?” with original 8-bit, vintage video game-style videos.

The newest video discusses Hegel and wrestles with the question “Is there an end to history?” Many attempt the academia-to-pop culture crossover, but this video series really nails it.

Cool TA’s everywhere should play these in their Philosophy 101 classes.
