Brilliant work

This podcast is in my top three along with The Gist (Panoply) and Rear Vision (another ABC programme). Thanks TPZ. Keep em coming.

Culturally myopic

This program oozes an unstated assumption of the superiority of western philosophy, and presumption that Anglo-saxon / USA mores and cultural norms are universal. There is the occasional tidbit from an African or Asian perspective, but the mainstay will not challenge a European centric view. The latest program about aging was a howler: some cultures venerate the elderly; most are brought up in close physical and emotional contact and love for their grandparents. The ABC can do better in presenting a pluralistic, culturally rich view of philosophy.

I learn a lot

I learn a lot from this program about both historical and contemporary philosophers; and how to think deeply and clearly about what really matters in life. Thanks for a great program - don’t stop!
