Fascinating debates but...

Fascinating debates and an overall wonderful set of interesting episodes. However very disappointed by the Rupert Sheldrake appearances; I was shocked by his nonsense having a place among such otherwise wonderful guests.

Just what I was looking for

A lot of the episodes are related to the philosophy of mind, epistemology, and the philosophy of science. I love this stuff.
