Great Philosophers Series (11:13:54)
This series of incisive intellectual conversations from the BBC archives presents a comprehensive introduction to the concepts of Western philosophy through 15 of its greatest thinkers. Each program features series creator, world-renowned author, professor, and philosophy specialist Bryan Magee, who discusses the philosophers’ ideas within the context of their times and intellectual accomplishments with other distinguished experts.
Great Ideas of Philosophy I Series (5:38:28)
This series investigates core questions in philosophy, such as: Why is there something rather than nothing? What is right action? And what do we mean when we talk about the “mind”? Some of the world’s foremost contemporary philosophers—Richard Sorabji, Colin McGinn, Hilary Putnam, Frances Kamm, Alexander Nehamas, and Arthur Danto, to name only six—enlighten and enliven with their knowledge on these and other topics.
Philosophy of Religion (44:41)
This program explores three major areas of philosophical inquiry into religion: religious epistemology, or the exploration of the rational grounds for religious beliefs and, in particular, the existence of God; the metaphysics of religion, which inquires into the nature of God; and theodicy, which examines the philosophical implications of the presence of evil in the world.
Faith and Reason (57:26)
Efforts being made by scientists and theologians to find common ground between their two seemingly opposing fields are captured at a Divine Action Conference. Sponsored jointly by the Vatican and the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, Berkeley, the conference gathers leading scientists, theologians, and philosophers, who discuss such issues as the origin of the universe and the meaning of life.
Beyond Theology Series (4:34:45)
The grand narratives of civilization are undergoing a metamorphosis of historic significance. Drawing upon the insights and experiences of respected theologians, scholars, and authors, this ten-part series addresses the emergence of worldviews that integrate scientific inquiry and spiritual insights while exploring the convergence of a wide range of religious traditions.
