Even economists are relevant, given our strangely unquenchable desire to witness the past being predicted with deadly accuracy. But philosophers? Not so much, it seems.

 

Angie believes, however, that philosophy anchors our human experience: “ it’s where we find the principles on which we build our knowledge, the tools to critical thinking and the keys to a more fulfilled life ”, she explains in this week's ReThink clip,
