“Philosophy Talk, a weekly, one-hour radio series, will be recording an episode live at the COS Theater. The hosts’ down-to-earth and no-nonsense approach brings the richness of philosophic thought to everyday subjects. Topics for past programs have been lofty (Truth, Beauty, Justice), arresting (Terrorism, Intelligent Design, Suicide), and engaging (Baseball, Love, Happiness).
This is not a lecture or a college course, it’s philosophy in action! Philosophy Talk is a fun opportunity to explore issues of importance to the audience in a thoughtful, friendly fashion, where thinking is encouraged.
