Press Start for “Does Political Correctness WORK?” by 8-Bit Philosophy, where classic video games introduce famous thinkers, problems, and concepts with quotes, teachings, and more. In this episode, we’ll dive into philosophy of language – specificially questioning whether politically correct (PC) language is helpful in combating discrimination or if it, instead, does more harm than good.
