What a service

I’m a student of English literature, so of course philosophy is relevant to my study, but it can’t be my priority. This podcast is such an invaluable tool for me. I have been working my way through some ancient and medieval philosophy for a project I’m working on, and my reading was so much sharper and ... just better overall because I was guided by this podcast. So thank you, Peter. By sharing your expertise with us, you have done a staggering service for others, like me, who are invested in intellectual history.

I’ll look for the book, Peter
