2 episodes

This is a podcast, directed at the philosophically curious, students, as well as fellow academics, in which I, Florian Steinberger, a philosopher at Birkbeck College, University of London, have informal philosophical discussions with experts in a range of different topics. Among them are the philosophy of fiction, the status of moral intuitions, as well as questions surrounding reference in the philosophy of language and whether many of us are too incompetent to deserve a right to vote, and much more. Future episodes will also take a philosophical angle on topics ranging from the sciences and the arts to dog training and martial arts. Many thanks to my supremely gifted brother, Chris Kieling (https://www.christopherkieling.com), for designing the logo.
