This is the series for you if you are a complete beginner to philosophy. It is an introduction to the main areas of philosophy, to the philosophical method, and to some of the sub-disciplines of philosophy. It was the first podcast series I made (in Michaelmas Term 2008). It made global number one on iTunesU in August 2009.
There are five lectures. Each of them is available in audio or video. There is also a reading list.
Here are the podcasts. I do hope you enjoy them!
Lecture Two: The Philosophical Method: Logic and Argument
Lecture Three: Ethics and Politics
Lecture Four: Metaphysics and Epistemology
Lecture Five: Philosophy of Language and Mind
