National Poetry Month on Philosophy Talk

April is National Poetry Month, so a philosopher might ask: what is poetry? Mere word play? A pretty, or at any rate striking, way of expressing thought and emotion? Or does great poetry involve an approach to the world that provides insight and information not available in other ways? John and Ken explore how poetry can illuminate what we know with award-winning poet Jane Hirshfield, author of Come, Thief and other poetic works of philosophical richness.  Philosophy Talk with John Perry and Ken Taylor ~ Sunday, April 6 at 10 am and Tuesday, April 8 at 12 noon.
