Public Philosophy

I welcome opportunities to philosophise with people whose day job is not philosophy, and my book Trust: a Very Short Introduction has opened up some great conversations.

On October 3rd 2016 I appeared on the Matt Townsend Show, BYU Radio, talking about anger and disappointment.

In July 2016 I gave a public lecture – Philosophical Reflections on Imposter Syndrome – in connection with the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy summer school for female students.  The video is here.

I have recently started blogging at Psychology Today – you can read my posts here.

On 7th April 2016 I spoke on ‘What is Epistemology?’, part of Theories of Knowledge, a course for arts and humantities research students across Scotland.  The lecture was live-streamed, and is available on YouTube here.
