When science meets philosophy | Philip Goff, Julian Baggini, Peter Atkins, Güneş Taylor

Philosophy For Our Times

Has science become the philosophical belief of our time? Leading scientists and philosophers discuss.Looking for a link we mentioned? It's here: https://linktr.ee/philosophyforourtimesIn less than a lifetime, the first half of the twentieth century brought a series of life changing inventions. In combination with the all encompassing new stories of physics, science, once a branch of philosophy, became the philosophical belief of our time. Some claimed philosophy was over.Yet in the last half century, technology has become more contentious and big scientific theory has seemingly stalled. Might philosophy once again find itself centre stage at a time when knowledge and progress are in question? Or is science still the only credible way to improve our circumstances and make sense of the world?Co-founder and editor of The Philosophers’ Magazine, Julian Baggini, chemist Peter Atkins, Crick Institute Researcher Güneş Taylor, and consciousness philosopher Philip Goff argue over life, the universe and everything.

Ideas and Insights - Ep. 05 - Dr. Julian Baggini

ONTV-Local Voice

In his latest book, The Great Guide: What David Hume Can Teach Us about Being Human and Living Well, published by Princeton University Press last year, eminent philosopher, Dr. Julian Baggini, offers an insightful account of Hume’s philosophy and his persona. He argues Hume was an original thinker who, unlike others of his ilk, did not allow his prodigious scholarship to obscure his humanism. Dr. Baggini posits that not only was Hume a first-rate philosopher, he was also an unparalleled exemplar of the good life. Far from being a stodgy sophist, Hume was a bon vivant. He loved company, good food,spirits, and friendly banter.

The Great Guide, with Julian Baggini

The Booking Club

In this enthralling book, Julian Baggini masterfully interweaves biography with intellectual history and philosophy to give us a complete vision of 18th century Scottish philosopher David Hume’s guide to life. He follows Hume on his life’s journey, literally walking in the great philosopher’s footsteps as Baggini takes readers to the places that inspired Hume the most, from his family estate near the Scottish border to Paris, where, as an older man, he was warmly embraced by French society. Baggini shows how Hume put his philosophy into practice in a life that blended reason and passion, study and leisure, and relaxation and enjoyment.

Julian Baggini: What David Hume Can Teach Us about Being Human and Living Well | STM Podcast #97

Seize The Moment Podcast

On episode 97, Leon chats with philosopher Julian Baggini about the philosophy and wisdom of David Hume, focusing on why he believed we could accept knowing things without knowing their foundations, the natural limitations of reason and need for intellectual humility, the importance of understanding human nature in order to form a coherent system of ethics, the incoherence of the concept of free-will and how we can maintain a sense of agency even if our choices are causally determined, the complexity and inherent contradictions of human personalities, why the rational and emotional aspects of our minds are systems that need and check one another, and Hume's psychological perceptions, which were later supported by modern scientific research.

PLEASE MOVE Let's Talk About How the World Thinks! With Julian Baggini

Meet the Macs

An Intellectual Johnny AppleseedJulian Baggini is no musician, he’s a philosopher, a journalist and writer (The Godless Gospel, Babette’s Feast, How the World Thinks, A Short History of Truth…). But he knows how to make music. It’s about awareness of otherness, he says, attention to underlying unity. Spin the knobs, adjust your value sets, create more tolerance, nothing is completely alien. Julian’s ideas resonate across domains and make for captivating conversation. Sharing small thoughts about big things and big thoughts about small things, our conversation touched on ballet, the NHS, comparative philosophy, jazz and, oh yes – leadership and ethics.Along the way, we discuss what Covid has exposed in individuals and society. Our culture, for example, hasn’t equipped us for transience. And the myth of self-sufficiency has blinded us to how the individual and the collective intertwine. Cutting yourself off makes you less creative; it’s precisely collaboration that allows for the expression of individuality. You never really piss in just your end of the pool.Julian mentions the embarrassment of non-awareness - that there’s more than one way to be intellectual and rational. The history of western thought is NOT the history of thought, he emphasizes. The attempt to understand the world by applying reason, without religion or mythology, has been underway for centuries, everywhere. And while admitting that philosophy is a luxury – requiring time to think – this generous intellectual Johnny Appleseed forged ahead, scattering seeds of thought everywhere along the way. I wish we could have elaborated on his view of universal basic income. Join us.
