Philosophy Talk asks: What will you read this summer to expand your mind?


Summer is here – what philosophers, philosophies, or philosophical issues do you want to read up on? Heidegger's Being and Time may not be the obvious choice to take on vacation, but there are lots of readable, beach-friendly classics and non-classics to add philosophical depth to your summer reading. John and Ken take suggestions from listeners and special guests: Lars Iyer, author of Wittgenstein Jr (A Novel); Berit Brogaard, author of On Romantic Love; and Jane Hirshfield, author of Ten Windows: How Great Poems Transform the World. Sunday 6/21 at 10 am and Tuesday at 12 noon.
