Philosophy Talk: Summer Reading List

"Summer Reading" by JennWrenn used under CC license

What books should thoughtful people read this summer?


Summer is the perfect time to dig in to deep reading. Arendt’s Origins of Totalitarianism may be a bit much for the beach, but there are lots of readable classics and new titles that could make your summer reading a transformative experience. Our host philosophers ask a few of their past guests what they’ll be reading – or writing – this summer, and they also take suggestions from listeners around the country. Sunday 7/02 at 10 am and Tuesday 7/04 at 12 pm.
