Prof Makes Philosophy Interesting and Relevant

Dr. Ted Garner, Lover of Wisdom

“Philosophy is interesting and relevant to my everyday life.”

Really? Well, maybe you haven’t believed that previously, but you will after hearing my interview with Brenau University professor Dr. Ted Garner.

Set aside sixty minutes for a fascinating hour of listening and learning, as Dr. Garner and I discuss:
–What prompted Dr. Garner to study philosophy
–Socrates, the “gadfly of Athens”: the Socratic method, his trial, and his influence on later generations
–Descartes, Dr. Garner’s favorite philosopher
–How we use inductive and deductive reasoning daily
–Philosophy and medical ethics
–Philosophy and politics
–Pragmatism
