Dentith Files, 95 bFM

I am still in the land of sporadic internets. My planned post on Petty Psychologies is currently on hold until such time that I can sit in front of an internet for more than a few minutes at a time.

Since I can’t guarantee a posting come Sunday I’ll say in advance that I interviewed Dr. Charles Pigden, of the University of Otago’s Department of Philosophy, last Monday as a pre-record. Charles has written three articles on Conspiracy Theories and can be said to have kickstarted the current philosophical interest in the material with his ‘Popper Revisited, Or What is Wrong with Conspiracy Theories.’ The interview was great fun and it’s filled with the philosophical goodnesses. Listen along; I know I will be.
