Hank begins to teach you about Philosophy by discussing the historical origins of philosophy in ancient Greece, and its three main divisions: metaphysics, epistemology, and value theory. He will also introduce logic, and how you're going to use it to understand and critically evaluate a whole host of different worldviews throughout this course. And also, hopefully, the rest of your life.

Crash Course Philosophy - Green brothers - Netflix
This article is about the brothers and their collaborative efforts and projects, as well as their lives. For their individual articles, see John Green and Hank Green. For their initial web project and collaborative video blog, see Vlogbrothers. Not to be confused with the Brothers Green or Green Brothers Novelty Band. The Green brothers, John (born August 24, 1977) and Hank (born May 5, 1980), are two American brothers, entrepreneurs, social activists, and YouTube vloggers. The two extensively work with each other in their lives and careers, having started their collaborative popularity with their “Brotherhood 2.0” project in 2007. The Greens' portfolio of online work, which Hank describes as “a small YouTube network with about 15 channels,” includes their main “Vlogbrothers” channel, SciShow, and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, among several others. John has risen from being a popular YouTube personality to Hollywood stardom with his breakthrough novel, The Fault in Our Stars, and its 2014 film adaptation. Although the novel's positioning at #1 on The New York Times Best Seller list, as well as the box office success of the film are reasons for his rise to celebrity prominence, John maintains he is instead best known for his online projects, such as Crash Course. Hank has also made himself individually known, having created “EcoGeek”, a blog dedicated to environmentally beneficial advancements in technology. The blog was originally a class project of Hank's, while he studied at the University of Montana, but eventually progressed into becoming a major environmental publication, which would grab the attention of Time. Hank has also gained recognition for co-founding the record label DFTBA Records with Alan Lastufka. Together, however, the two brothers are credited with creating what some have described as a “YouTube media” or “online multimedia” empire. This empire, including projects centered on education, gaming, and trivia, among others, has amassed an active fanbase known as “Nerdfighteria.”
Crash Course Philosophy - Dear Hank & John - Netflix
In June 2015, the brothers started a weekly podcast titled Dear Hank & John. Taking a mainly humorous tone, each podcast opens with John reading a poem that he selected for the week before the brothers read a series of questions submitted by listeners and offering their advice. The podcast closes with a news segment with two standard topics: Mars, presented by Hank, and AFC Wimbledon, presented by John. John was absent from a number of episodes during the summer of 2015 due to the Paper Towns publicity tour; various friends of the brothers filled in for him opposite Hank on those occasions.
