APEX Level To Power: Self Empowerment from the Tribe. How to Identify and Control the Strings of Power that dominate our lives

Are you a Sheep or a Wolf? An Alpha or a Beta? Everyone who isn’t at the top of the power hierarchy wants to know how to get there, but those in control are rarely willing to give up their secrets to success. Sheep, stuck in the herd but longing to escape, are left with self-help books that promise results but only offer clichéd platitudes and empty advice. What you need is a clear framework, a step-by-step guide to advancing in society. In this episode of Level To Power, we discuss the vital first step to becoming a leader instead of a follower — and it might be as simple as changing your perspective. Apex Level To Power is a podcast that examines the inner workings of human interactions and teaches you how to succeed within your own interpersonal relationships. Change your Level, Change your Life, Change the World. Find out more at: www.LevelToPower.com

"The philosophy of Objectivism holds that all human knowledge is reached through reason, the human mental faculty of understanding the world abstractly and logically. Aristotle called man "the rational animal" because it is the faculty of reason that most distinguishes humans from other creatures. But we do not reason automatically. We are beings of free will and we are fallible. This is why we need the science of knowledge—epistemology—to teach us what knowledge is and how to achieve it."

In this episode of Apex LTP we chat with Philosophy Professor Rick Repetti to Understand how we know what we know.
