Daniel Ellsberg — author, anti-war activist and whistleblower best known for his role in releasing the Pentagon Papers — spoke on Wednesday to an audience in Cubberley Auditorium about his views on nuclear weapons and his experiences as a military analyst during the Cold War.
Philosophy Talk, a Stanford-based radio talk show featuring professors of philosophy, John Perry and Kenneth Taylor, is facing a funding crisis that may threaten its continuation.
With the goal of making philosophy accessible to the average person, “Philosophy Talk,” an original radio talk show starring Stanford professors Kenneth Taylor and John Perry, has grown to reach over 100,000 listeners per broadcast and has inspired several similar programs across the country.
Perry is well known in philosophy circles as an influential, widely published author. He has published over 100 books and articles on topics ranging from philosophy of language to philosophy of mind to metaphysics.
Emeritus professor of philosophy John Perry was awarded an Ig Nobel prize in the literature category last Thursday for his theory of “structured procrastination.”
