365DaysOfPhilosophy 365 — End Of The 365 Days Of Philosophy

This is it! End of the series. For the Patreon subscribers, there’s an index to the main posts of the podcast and I’ll be sending out a pdf version in March. It’s been a busy year, busier that I intended. I started a PhD, I lost a much loved pet, and adopted a new one. I travelled across country three times (podcasting throughout, as you may have noticed) and taught classes in a variety of subjects. As a radio broadcaster, I presented about 40 shows and podcasted with the Talk the Talk show (around 40 episodes too). I presented a few live shows, contributed to more philosophy resources than the ones here and was inspired by conferences and talks nationwide. I stayed home more often than went out though, I think. There’s a number of events I missed due to health reasons and that’s a good sign that things need to slow down for a while. It’s time for a break. If you have any further questions, get in touch via tokenskeptic at gmail.

The lectures comprise the 8-week General Philosophy course and were delivered in late 2009. More resources can be found at 365 Days Of Philosophy.

365DaysOfPhilosophy 359 — Doctor Who andHumanism

It being Boxing Day, one of the traditions of the season is the Doctor Who broadcast, and this year there was a strong allusion to the philosophy of Bertrand Russell. It’s nothing particularly new; John Leeson was the actor who provided the voice for both the Nucleus and K-9. Leeson based K-9’s voice on that of philosopher, mathematician and historian, Bertrand Russell. To recognise the very humanistic contributions of the series, here’s a documentary on “50 Years of Humanism” in Doctor Who, and a recent article reviewing (spoiler alert!) on the new Doctor.

365DaysOfPhilosophy 357 — Book Resource The Atheist’s Guide To Christmas

The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas, edited by Ariane Sherine, is not a recent collection, such as a fairly dated but amusing essay on James Randi as a Santa Claus figure, but it’s still got some valuable contributions on the topic of celebrating the season from non-faith perspectives. There’s 42 essays included, to honour the memory of Douglas Adams, in categories like stories, how-to, philosophy and science. Many of the contributors touch upon their loss of faith and how they then view Christmas, there’s views on the celebrations of the season and even a few short stories and movie reviews and literature. Some of the names like Dawkins are well-known but I think I enjoyed the views on science of “Christmastology” and the collective values that we can all hold regardless of religion. If you can still find a copy, or the audio version by the contributors, it’s an enjoyable seasonal read.

365DaysOfPhilosophy 356 — Book Resource Christmas Philosophy ForEveryone

To give this book its full title, Christmas — Philosophy for Everyone: Better than a Lump of Coal, itinvestigates the history of philosophy while delving into the different approaches to the festive season, such as the perspectives of Aristotle, Hume, Kant and Nietzsche. There’s a number of contributing essays in this collection edited by Scott Lowe, with religion, icons (both secular and otherwise), morality and commercialism. Naturally the topic of religion arises often in this kind of book, but there’s a very strong sense of how Christmas has moved well beyond religious observance for many, leading to different ethical and social conundrums such as gift-giving and receiving, supporting traditions and even the stories, from as Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to The Polar Express. Whether or not you think “Putting the “Yule” back in “Yuletide” is a necessary goal of Christmas, I enjoyed this book for the many different and creative approaches it took with the topic.
