Episode 1- Quarantine Pills

Why Minerva’s Owl?
Minerva was the Roman goddess of experience and wisdom, and her owl always sits on her shoulder. Since owls can rotate their neck backwards, Hegel employed this concept to explain that we only have a retrospective glance on history from which we can build our own judgment on our experience in the present moment.
