To celebrate the publication of our second Philosophy Bites book, Philosophy Bites Back, we've released a 39 minute podcast episode of a wide range of philosophers answering the question 'Who's Your Favourite Philosopher?'
Are we simply material beings? Do we have an immaterial soul? Can we know this? These questions have vexed philosophers for millenia. Avicenna, who was born in the 10th Century believed he could show that we are not simply physical through a thought experiment, the Flying Man. Peter Adamson discusses this idea with Nigel Warburton in this episode of the Philosophy Bites podcast.
Is it possible to know your self? Does everyone have a sense of their own self? These thorny questions are the focus of this episode of the Philosophy Bites podcast. Galen Strawson is in conversation with Nigel Warburton. David Edmonds introduces the podcast.
