Philosophy has been studied for thousands of years. It involves the use of reason and argument to search for the truth about reality - about the nature of things, ethics, aesthetics, language, the mind, God and everything else. This series of five introductory lectures, aimed at students new to philosophy, presented by Marianne Talbot, Department for Continuing Education, University of Oxford, will test you on some famous thought experiments and introduce you to some central philosophical issues and to the thoughts of some key philosophers.

Recording quality

“A romp through....” the recording is very tinny and distorted

What a Joy

What a joy listening to this podcast. Excellent

Excellent and it’s free - what’s not to like!

I really don't know why some people didn’t seem to enjoy this. The idea is to introduce the audience to multiple philosophical topics, not to indulge the audiences own ideas. I don’t really care what the 'audiences opinions’ are, I want to hear beginners explanations of the major schools / areas of philosophy, and that’s exactly what I got.
