Christofer and physicist Sam Kuypers speak about the importance of understanding the problem situation when explaining any knowledge creating system in this episode of Do Explain. They discuss determinism and evolution, reductionism, eastern philosophy and enlightenment, phenomenological self-representation, if dinosaurs were people, Pickle Rick, knowledge in the multiverse, Thomas Szasz and mental illness, the paradox of discussion, and other related topics.

Sam Kuypers, known as Crit_Rat on Twitter, is a DPhil student in physics at the University of Oxford. He researches foundational issues in quantum theory and, besides physics, is mainly interested in the philosophy of science, as his twitter-handle suggests (@Crit_Rat).
