This week, we broadcast our fifth annual summer reading list show. Over the five years that we've done this, we've been really impressed at how widely and deeply read our listening audience is. It really heartens usto know that there are still avid readers out there, in this age when reading has been declared all but dead.
What Is It
What philosophers, philosophies, or philosophical issues do you want to read up on over the summer? Heidegger's Being and Time probably isn't the obvious choice to take on vacation, but there are a lot of readable, beach-friendly classics and non-classics to add philosophical depth to your vacation reading. Not to mention new and classic fiction books with a philosophical bent. You are invited to join John and Ken to share some of the philosophically-minded reading on your reading list.
