Interview with Julian Baggini, Best Selling Author & Philosopher
Do historical philosophers still impact our thinking today? Is this the basis for international culture and communication differences?
On March 24, 2021, at 6:00 pm CET, Dr. Julian Baggini will share his ideas on global philosophy and how they affect our thinking today. Julian is a best selling author, with over 25 books, and the Academic Director at the Royal Institute of Philosophy. He is also a regular columnist for The Guardian newspaper, Prospect magazine, Financial Times and a columnist, and a book reviewer for The Wall Street Journal. He founded The Philosophers’ Magazine and the Humanist Philosophers’ Group. And these are just a few of his notorieties!
I became interested in Julian’s ideas after picking up his book, How the World Thinks, from the bestseller’s shelf at the airport. As an international communication trainer, I’m always looking for new insight into cultural and communication differences, and this book didn’t let me down. Using his adventures abroad, he takes the reader on a journey through the history of philosophy and around the world. As he compared philosophy and religion, I couldn’t help but question the origin of my own ideas.
