Microphilosophy with Julian Baggini


The history of philosophy in English

Season 4, Ep. 6

Jonathan Rée rejects the ‘condescending smugness’ of traditional histories of philosophy. In his new history of philosophy in English Witcraft he abandons the standard, tired narratives and presents the history of philosophy as a haphazard series of unmapped forest paths, a mass of individual stories showing endurance, inventiveness, bewilderment, anxiety, impatience, and good humor. Expect the same from this conversation with Julian Baggini, Rée and Andrew Pyle.
