Dr Nigel Warburton on Radio 4’s ‘The Philosopher’s Arms’

Join Dr Nigel Warburton in the Philosopher’s Arms where philosophical ideas, logical dilemmas and the real world meet for a chat and a drink.

“Each week presenter Matthew Sweet takes a puzzle with philosophical pedigree and asks why it matters in the everyday world. En route we’ll learn about the thinking of such luminaries as Aristotle, Hobbes, Hume, Kant, John Stuart Mill and Wittgenstein. All recorded in a pub with an audience, who’ll have their own contributions to make – but whose assumptions and intuitions will be challenged and, perhaps, undermined.

Propping up the bar this year will be philosophers such as Julian Baggini and Nigel Warburton, and academic experts on memory, the law, art and computers.”

The new series of BBC Radio 4’s The Philosopher’s Arms starts on Tuesday 7 August at 15:00, with the podcast available via the BBC website.
