Philosophers on

This is cool. Bloggingheads' first [see comments] philosophy 'diavlog' is with Josh Knobe. Here's a clip:

There's plenty there to disagree with (does he really answer the question whether philosophical questions are irresolvable by suggesting that philosophers should do science instead?), but it's great to see philosophers involved in such public discussions. I'm told is looking to have other philosophers on the show (/site) over the next few months, so it'll be interesting to see how (and who) they turn out...


  1. Bloggingheads is a great site! I can think of at least two other explicitly philosophical diavlogs, one with Chalmers and one with John Leslie. Also, Will Wilkinson sometimes talks about political philosophy (e.g., discussing the book The Myth of the Rational Voter), and Science Saturdays are generally pretty interesting as well.

  2. Ah, I didn't know about those -- thanks for the links!
