The Grindstone Live: Ask a Philosopher
On Wednesday, 21 August 2019, The Grindstone set up a table in the Purdue Memorial Mall as part of the College of Liberal Arts' Celebrate Liberal Arts Week. This week was itself part of the larger "150 Years of Giant Leaps" sesquicentennial celebration of Purdue University.
We asked students and other passersby what they think philosophy is, whether or not they have taken philosophy classes, and generally opened up the microphones giving people the opportunity to ask a philosopher any questions they had. This episode features some of the results of those conversations.
Thanks to Drs. Daniel R. Kelly, Michael Augustin, Leonard Harris, and Morganna Lambeth, and graduate student Brandon Rdzak for their participation. And a big thank you to all of the students and other members of the campus community who stopped by that day to engage our philosophers. The end of the pod features a very special guest - a true Boilermaker icon!
Special thanks to Caroline Cross, who produces and edits The Grindstone, for her tireless efforts in stitching together all of this audio!
