New Philosophy Podcast on Politics and Public Discourse

Why We Argue is a new, interview-based podcast “that explores the triumphs and disasters of American political conversation.” It is hosted by Robert Talisse, professor of philosophy at Vanderbilt University and is part of the Humility and Conviction in Public Life project directed by Michael Lynch, professor of philosophy at the University of Connecticut.

This is just one of several such projects Professor Talisse is involved with. He also conducts interviews as part of the New Books In Philosophy team and recently put out the Philosophy 15 video series.
