Elucidations is a monthly philosophy podcast recorded at the University of Chicago. Each month, Matt Teichman sits down with a prominent philosopher to talk about their latest work and areas of philosophical expertise. The podcast covers a wide range of topics from the theoretical to the practical (including causation, metaphor, agency, religious freedom, and moral psychology) and explores a wide range of problems from the perennial to the cutting-edge (including skepticism and experimental philosophy).

Elucidations is a rare gem.


Always interesting guests.

A top class philosophy podcast

This podcast consists of interviews with professional philosophers on a range of topics - often philosophy of language, but it has ranged widely over historical subjects and various areas in contemporary philosophy. The discussions are very clear and also very detailed - the interviewers ask astute questions and often "recap" what the interview guests have been saying, which is helpful. The obvious comparison is to the podcast Philosophy Bites; the Elucidation interviews tend to be more in-depth and sophisticated, with a longer running time. Certainly recommended for anyone with a serious interest in philosophy.
