Join Julian Baggini as he talks about his book How the World Thinks, the first global overview of philosophy. Travelling to Japan, China, India and more, the project soon became one of the most rewarding intellectual journeys of his life. He argues that we cannot begin to understand other cultures until we examine the software their minds work on – and, more than that, we cannot understand ourselves.
Julian Baggini is a popular philosopher and author of more than ten books. He has appeared on Newsnight, many BBC Radio 4 programmes, and even as a character in an Alexander McCall Smith novel!
