Giving a Philosophy Talk


Ole Koksvik (Bergen), along with the help of friends, has put together a very useful set of tips for giving a philosophy talk.  I appreciated the “rationale” section, in which he notes, among other things, that “giving a bad presentation is impolite.”  There is some good advice throughout, much of which is consistent with the general rule that guides how I put together my presentations: “remember, philosophers are people, too.”

And while we’re on the subject of talks, let me (again?) draw your attention to this now classic post on how to ask a question at a talk.

Feel free to add your thoughts on the topic.
