Explaining Plato with 8-bit NES graphics.

130px-Link_LOZ_with_itemsPlato’s allegory of the Cave is one of the basic areas of study for philosophy. It’s something helpful to learn, and now you can do it a cool way.  Thug notes and 8 bit philosophy have begun a new series starting with the one below and after finding it I just had to share. Who wouldn’t want to learn serious philosophy through the Lens of NES Graphics and the likes of Link from Zelda?  See below and give them a like, and maybe even subscribe if your so inclined. -Sam


We have added a blog roll! Come and check it out and tell us if you want to be on it

5by5nit’s been on my to do list for a long while, but now I’ve finally taken the time to add a “Blog Roll” to the site. Plenty of links to good places to read, learn form, discuss at, watch etc.

If you would like to add us to your blog roll (if you have one) let me know and I’ll add you. If you have added the .com in the past under our previous name (yournerdnation.com) I’d appreciate an update to the new one as the old one won’t be active forever, and of course let me know so I can add you to the blogroll!

Know something else, not even your site, that really deserves some attention on the list?

let us know. -Sam
