The eminent British philosopher Derek Parfit passed away earlier this week. Although he had never joined us on the program, his 2011 book On What Matters was the subject of the first segment on our very first year-in-review special, when John and Ken talked about it with USC philosopher Mark Schroeder. As we prepare for the live broadcast of The Examined Year 2016 this coming Sunday, check out that (mostly) uncut conversation from The Examined Year: 2011.
R.I.P. Derek Parfit
