Philosophy Weekend: News from Philosophy in Action

By Diana Hsieh

Every Saturday, I post the news of the week from my primary work, Philosophy in Action, where I apply rational principles to the challenges of real life. Here's this week's update.

Upcoming Radio Shows

Philosophy in Action Radio broadcasts live over the internet on most Sunday mornings and Thursday evenings. Below are the episodes upcoming this week. I hope that you join us! More upcoming episodes can be found here: Episodes on Tap.

Thursday evening, 5 June 2014: Chat about "Responsibility & Luck, Chapter Two"

I'll chat about "Discussion of Responsibility & Luck, Chapter Two" with listeners on the live broadcast of Philosophy in Action Radio on Thursday evening, 5 June 2014.

What are some of the common proposed solutions to the problem of moral luck? Why do they fail? I will answer these questions and more in this live discussion of Chapter Two of my book, Responsibility & Luck: A Defense of Praise and Blame.

The live broadcast begins at 6 pm PT / 7 MT / 8 CT / 9 ET on Thursday, 5 June 2014. The podcast will be posted later that evening. For more details, check out the episode page.
