Advance notice: Everyday philosophy

Advance notice of a forthcoming talk at the Oxford Playhouse on the 11th February, given by Philosophy Bites author Nigel Warburton:

What is philosophy? Who needs it? Writer and podcaster Nigel Warburton, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the Open University, discusses the relevance of philosophy to life today. From questions about the limits of free speech to the nature of happiness, from what art is to the impact of new technology, philosophy offers insights into questions that matter. Warburton will explore how the thoughts of some of the great philosophers of the past shed light on our present day predicament.

    Sounds great – but for those who can’t attend, the philosophy bites duo recently put together an anthology of answers to the question ‘What is philosophy?’ by their various interviewees. (It’s posted on http://www.philosophybites.com ).

  • “Writer and podcaster Nigel Warburton, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the Open University, discusses the relevance of philosophy to life today.”

    Will Warburton’s opening monologue go something like this:
    “mmm… ontology… not relevant… metaphysics, largely irrelevant… ethics relevant… philosophy of religion, somewhat relevant… philosophical logic, not too much…”?
