I’d like to point visitors to a blog/podcast I found last week called The Partially Examined Life. On a semi-regular basis, four former philosophy students and graduates get together on Skype and discuss a predetermined topic from philosophy, usually with a little bit of humor to keep things from getting too like a lecture hall.
From their website:
The Partially Examined Life is a philosophy podcast by some guys who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it. Each episode, we pick a text and chat about it with some balance between insight and flippancy. You don’t have to know any philosophy, or even to have read the text we’re talking about to (mostly) follow and (hopefully) enjoy the discussion.
Highly recommended. I’ve added their site to the links at the bottom of the main page, even though it (generally) has nothing to do with music. Although, their discussion of structuralism resulted in a blog post about Adorno, Zizek, and the function of popular music in society, so I guess it all fits together somehow.
