Podcast Idea: Plato's Guide to Game of Thrones

Podcast Idea: Plato's Guide to Game of Thrones - student project

My podcast idea is this: Each week, I’ll interview a philosopher/ethicist and have them weigh in on an ethical dilemma from Game of Thrones. Essentially, the podcast will use the much-loved TV show as a case study for moral ethics.

 

The podcast will seek to address questions like: How can Plato’s allegory of the cave provide us with insight into Sansa’s sojourn at King’s Landing? Whose actions are more aligned with Kant’s categorical imperative: Ned Stark or Jon Snow? Which character, if any, would Nietzsche identify as the Übermensch?

 

I’m still very much in the ideation phase for my podcast, so I’ve uploaded the first page of my workbook below.
