Philosophy and Product Thinking
A Product Besserwisser who claims Socrates as a great inspiration, that is as much of a paradox as the famous Socratic Paradox itself - "I know that I know nothing".

But seriously what can we learn from the old philosophers? Quite a few things as it turns out. Hegel with his Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis has without doubt influenced both sciences and how we work in product. We want to put a suggestion/hypothesis/MVP on the table so there can be a counter suggestion and then we can move to the next level, the synthesis were we have merged the best of the two.

If you want to get inspiration from Philosophers here are some recommendations:

Philosophize This /podcast (philosophizethis.org/)

Sophie's World (adlibris.com/)

The Philosophical Room /swedish (sverigesradio.se/)
