Product description

Review

'An absorbing collection of interviews with 16 of the nation's rising stars.. .A great deal of ability is on show in New British Philosophy." - The New Statesman

'There is a new diversity in British academic philosophy - it doesn't just consist of white men puffing pipes and meditating on predicate calculus, but embraces feminism, and offers new treatments of age-old questions about political obligation, aesthetics and consciousness.' - The Guardian

Synopsis

From popular introductions to biographies and television programmes, philosophy is everywhere. Many people even want to be philosophers, usually in the cafe or the pub. But what do real philosophers do? What are the big philosophical issues of today? Why do they matter? How did some our best philosophers get into philosophy in the first place? Read New British Philosophy and find out for the first time. Clear, engaging and designed for a general audience, sixteen fascinating interviews with some of the top philosophers working in Britain today range from music to the mind and feminism to the future of philosophy. Each interview is introduced and conducted by Julian Baggini and Jeremy Stangroom of The Philosophers Magazine. This is a unique snapshot of philosophy in Great Britain today and includes interviews with: Ray Monk - Biography Nigel Warburton - the Public Aaron Ridley - Music Jonathan Wolff - Politics Roger Crisp - Ethics Rae Langton - Pornography Miranda Fricker - Knowledge M.G.F.Martin - Perception Timothy Williamson - Vagueness Tim Crane - Mind Robin Le Poidevin - Metaphysics Christina Howells - Sartre Simon Critchley - Phenomenology Simon Glendinning - Continental Stephen Mulhall - the Future Keith Ansell Pearson - the Human.
