I’ve been listening to this fantastic podcast for a while now (although have only just discovered its website). Created by Peter Adamson, Professor of Philosophy at the LMU in Munich and at King’s College London, it has been working through the major thinkers and their ideas starting in the ancient world and moving forward, slowly. It has just reached its 150th episode and is now dealing with the thought of medieval Islam. The podcast is accessible to the lay person as Adamson discusses each topic with great clarity and humour. I’ve found much of it really interesting and entertaining and can thoroughly recommend it if you have any interest at all in the history of ideas.
