Philosophy Bites Back
“As a fan of the Philosophy Bites podcast, I'm very pleased to see this publication of conversations with leading scholars on major figures in the history of philosophy. The result is not only a good introduction to that history, but a rare chance to read top-level philosophers speaking extemporaneously about the subjects they know best. Even regular listeners to the podcast will be glad to have this written version of highlights from the series.”
Peter Adamson, History of Philosophy
Philosophy Bites Back is the second book to come out of the hugely successful podcast Philosophy Bites*. It presents a selection of lively interviews with leading philosophers of our time, who discuss the ideas and works of some of the most important thinkers in history.
From the ancient classics of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, to the groundbreaking modern thought of Wittgenstein, Rawls, and Derrida, this volume spans over two and a half millennia of western philosophy and illuminates its most fascinating ideas.
This book is lively, engaging, and accessible - it will communicate philosophy to a broad readership and includes interviews with an excellent line-up of philosophers from Britain and North America.
Contributions include Quentin Skinner on Niccolo Machiavelli’s The Prince, A.C. Grayling on René Descartes’ Cogito, and Mary Warnock on Jean-Paul Sartre’s existentialism. The Philosophy Bites podcast was set up in 2007 by David Edmonds and Nigel Warburton. It has had over 14 million international downloads: philosophybites.com.
