Philosophers in the News
Harry Frankfurt was on The Daily Show plugging his new book, On Truth. (Watch it here.)
Also, Peter Singer was on The Colbert Report plugging his new book, The Way We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter. (Watch it here.)
As many of you know, philosophers are not often allowed to talk to the general public. They are often thought to "corrupt the youth" and so forth. In a way it's sad that philosophers can only promote their work on Comedy Central. However, as far as I'm concerned, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are the best damn news programs in the U.S.
