Today I woke up to Radio4 as usual and was surprised to hear this years Reith Lecture by Aung San Suu Kyi on Securing Freedom. Very interesting, looking forward to hearing the remainder
The archive is available and I thought I would share my highlights:
- Vilayanur Ramachandran: The Emerging Mind was the first one I ever listened to, great peek into how the brain works
- Edward Said: The representation of the Intellectual
- John Searle: Minds Brains And Science. I dont agree with Searle but find him very engaging and thought provoking.
- Bertrand Russell: Authority and the Individual. The first Reith lecture was by a personal hero.
