What's Philosophy?

In this video, I answer the ultimate question, what’s philosophy, by looking at philosophy’s origin to present day, a whopping 2500-year history of human thinking. I answer all the major philosophical questions.

I spent at least 150 hours on reading, researching, synthesising ideas, recording, editing and uploading this video. In the process I lost a laptop, so if you enjoyed this video or learnt something useful, please consider supporting me. I really appreciate your help.
