A Philosophy Mixtape (playlist)

Here is a playlist I created to go along with my intro to philosophy class.

The texts we use and the order:

1. Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy
2. Ursula LeGuin's The Lathe of Heaven
3. Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five
4. Plato's The Republic
5. Peter Beagle's The Last Unicorn

I'm very proud of this playlist. Colleen gave me great advice and confirmation for which songs to use and where they should go. I think it not only matches well the texts, but it says something important. It is somewhat autobiographical, given how much I live and love within philosophy.

Please enjoy. Give it an hour-and-a-half. The lyrics matter!
