Here's an announcement of an upcoming online talk by friend and guest of the podcast, the brilliant Jan Westerhoff!
BSHP ANNUAL LECTURE 2020
JAN WESTERHOFF (OXFORD): "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY: The Problem on Solipsism
in Ancient Indian Philosophy"
As you may have noticed our summer break is over! Africana Philosophy already returned last week, with an episode on Anténor Firmin. Over the next few months Chike and I will be wrapping up our coverage of the 19th century, finishing with Booker T. Washington and the early writings of W.E.B. Du Bois - look out for episodes on Ida Wells, and developments in the Caribbean and in Brazil!
Job opening at my Lehrstuhl here in Munich! People with expertise in late ancient and/or Islamic philosophy welcome to apply. (I am especially hoping to get someone with expertise in late ancient.) Full text of the advertisement below:
The Chair for Late Antique and Arabic Philosophy (Prof. Dr. Peter Adamson) at the Faculty for Philosophy, Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Religion at the LMU seeks to fill a temporary position beginning on April 1, 2021, as:
"Interpreting Averroes: Critical Essays," which I edited with Matteo Di Giovanni for Cambridge University Press, is now out in paperback! Contact me if you want a flyer that will get you a 20% discount.
For those on the lookout for other history of philosophy podcasts, you might check out this series, which in comparison to HoPWaG is mercifully short. Covers some of the main figures since Hobbes, including Wollstonecraft, Marx, Fanon, etc.
Here is a blog post I just wrote for "Daily Nous": The Margins of Philosophy, on the importance of studying "minor" figures and including them in popular philosophical projects like this podcast.
Just an announcement that I will be speaking at Intelligent Speech 2020, an online conference that brings together the best educational podcasters and their listeners, to be held online on June 27. Some key info (act now to get a cheaper ticket):
OMG the new issue of podcasting magazine Pod Bible has an interview in which the great Stephen Fry (of whom I am a huge fan, like he is literally my favorite celebrity) reports that he listens to HoPWaG. So listeners you are in excellent company! And I, to quote from Blackadder, am as excited as a particularly excitable person who has a special reason to be excited.

John Knox polemicizes against idolaters and female rulers, while the humanist George Buchanan argues more calmly for equally radical political conclusions.0 comments
