For The Love Of Wisdom: Why Philosophy Still Matters Today

Apr 23, 2018

Philosophy can get a bad rap as a subject only for scholars and academics, with little use in the real world. But many in the field say that philosophy doesn't have to be inaccessible; it can be a tool we use to tackle a wide range of the problems that we face every day. We're delving into this ancient subject and exploring how philosophy is relevant today.

We're joined by Terence Cuneo, professor of philosophy at UVM, and by and Kenny Walden, professor of philosophy at Dartmouth College. Cuneo is one of the philosophers taking part in the second Public Philosophy Week in Burlington beginning next week.
