Very interesting, if you are reading this subscribe, this podcast will get you thinking.
I just listened to Intellectual Arrogance which was satuated with Intellectual Arrogance, even ending with the idea that Intellectual Arrogance is an affliction of the powerful rather than the educated or in this case an educated philosopher. Did David Edmonds pick an arrogant philosopher to discuss Intellectual Arrogance so he could demonstrate what arrogance looks like? I think so and that is why he left in the bit about politics and the oh so carefully worded opinions of the current POTUS. David wants his listerners not just to listen but to think. Subscribe, see for yourself.
Everything David Edmonds and Nigel warburton have done is great, but this is my favorite. Philosophy bites is geared towards those with some fundamental knowledge of philosophy, but philosophy 247 is a wonderful blend of current events and philosophical expertise that is perfectly accessible to an audience that has little knowledge of philosophy. Highly recommend it
