Welcome to our inaugural podcast! Soon we will be live on iTunes and Google Play.
In this podcast, Paul Fairfield, Professor of Philosophy at Queen’s University in Kingston Ontario, addresses the questions, what is philosophy? Also, what is it for and who is it for?
What philosophy is is itself a philosophical question, and there are many answers, no one of which is likely ever to be definitive, any more than the question, what is art? Among the more fundamental questions that philosophers have always asked are, what is the good life? How should we be living? What kind of society is a just society? Does human life have a meaning, or perhaps many meanings?
