East of Eden or West of Babel? Brian Kogelmann and Jayme Lemke on Idealized Philosophy

On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, Jayme Lemke and Brian Kogelmann enter the philosophical realm to tackle an enduring question about being East of Eden or West of Babel in our philosophical pursuits.  Also on the podcast, we'll discover why the tools of philosophy alone can't answer many of the discipline's pressing questions, why moral perfection wouldn't necessarily dictate a socialist society, and how Rawls has shaped the field of philosophy.  In closing, we'll also hear how Mercatus's Adam Smith fellowship shaped Brian Kogelmann's career and why he recommends that all graduate students take advantage of the Mercatus fellowships.
