Summer

On the July 22nd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about free events, new ways to explore Bay Area neighborhoods, nature walks and hikes. 

Summer is here – what philosophers, philosophies, or philosophical issues do you want to read up on? Heidegger's Being and Time may not be the obvious choice to take on vacation, but there are lots of readable, beach-friendly classics and non-classics to add philosophical depth to your summer reading.

What philosophers, philosophies, or philosophical issues would you like to read up on over the summer?

They also get summer reading suggestions from author Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, whose new book is Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away, and Yale University philosopher Jason Stanley, author of the forthcoming Why Propaganda Matters.

Summer: Day one

May 26, 2012

Disregard the almanac. And the calendar. Forget whatever the meteorologist or the astrology charts or your next-door neighbor with the hair growing out of a mole shaped like the state of Delaware on his nose told you. The true wormhole opening to summer is not the upcoming solstice on Wednesday, June 20th – it is, has been, and forever shall be the last Monday of May, Memorial Day.
