15 - Interview: politics v. philosophy with Agnes Callard
Play • 42 min

Agnes Callard is a philosophy prof, Plato expert and public philosopher. We talk about the relationship between politics and philosophy (it’s complicated), why nobody should trust philosophers (they don’t know anything), and why human beings can’t even think something without someone else telling them they’re wrong.

We mention Callard’s op-eds: “Should we cancel Aristotle?” and “How to politicize a classroom”
