This Podcast is an introduction to the concept “Cogito, Ergo Philosophus.” The understanding is that there is a link between human thinking and human survival. A person’s capacity to engage in self-introspection (i.e., philosophizing) is paramount for the individual to endeavor to survive. The Cogito allows the being to be in synchrony with the world around him. The Cogito is the essence of human survival.
