It gives me great pleasure to announce that I have begun a podcast based on the content of my books in the Smart Student's Guides to Philosophical Classics series.  


The first podcast is UNDERSTANDING PLATO.  Like the book, it is about Plato's Socratic dialogues and his celebrated Republic.  The podcast is divided into episodes of about 20 minutes. 

Each episode is about one dialogue or a part thereof, beginning with Euthyphro.   Several episodes have already been published.  

Future episodes will be broadcast weekly on Monday evenings at 5 pm PST.  All past episodes are saved and can be heard on the sites listed below.

Each podcast will be based on a volume in the Smart Student's Guides series.  Listener  experience will be enhanced if you have a copy of the book to consult during or after the broadcast. 


Future podcasts will be about Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan, Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy, John Locke's Second Treatise of Government, Immanuel Kant's Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals, John Stuart Mill's Utilitarianism and On Liberty, and David Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion
