Some things we mulled over. ... Possibility of a science of humans. Statistical sociology. Economics. The Invisible Hand of Adam Smith. Google and Facebook using data to predict consumer behaviour. Advertising. ... The free-will problem. People who deny the existence of free-will need to describe an example of somebody doing something of their own free-will. They need to say what it is that they think doesn't exist. ... Why philosophy is not more popular. It involves seeing things as problems which aren't immediately obvious as problesms. For example the Hard Problem of consciousness. The Matrix as an introduction to some philosophical problems: "there is no spoon".
