Over the past two decades, our view of the ideals for science in society has changed.

podcast image89 - Uh Oh, Have the Chat Bots Gone Sentient??
In today's episode, we discuss whether Google's "Lambda" chat bot is sentient. If not, is it intelligent? Does it have moral standing? What do these terms even mean?Toby Napoletano, Michael Hughes (2022-Jul-01 • 100 minutes • @TheBadlandsPod)
podcast imageRendering Trauma Audible with María del Rosario Acosta López
What would it mean to do justice to testimonies of traumatic experience? That is, how can experiences which do not fit the customary scripts of sense-making be heard? Whereas processes of official memorialization or legal redress often demand that victims and survivors convey their experiences through familiar modes of narration, María del Rosario Acosta López's project on “grammars of listening” asks how it might be possible to hear these experiences on their own terms and what are the challenges that we e...

podcast image#39: 'Thick' ethical concepts and your sneaky inner critic
Everything's a judgment with your inner critic, isn't it? It's never 'I'm having trouble focusing today'; instead, it's 'I'm lazy'. And it's never 'I'm prioritising my own goals this morning'; it's 'I'm selfish'. Has it ever occurred to you that not every unhelpful character trait, choice, or behaviour is a moral flaw? You probably haven't noticed this, but your inner critic likes to sneak moral judgment into ever... (2022-Jul-01 • 22 minutes • @AcademicImp@rebecca_roache)

podcast imageAugustine Of Hippo, Confessions - The Divided Will - Sadler's Lectures
This lecture discusses key ideas from the early medieval philosopher and theologian, Augustine of Hippo's work, The Confessions. It focuses specifically on his discussion of the ways in which a person's will can be divided between different objects and motives, so that, even though there is one single faculty of will, a person can experience wanting to do or choose something and nevertheless find him or herself choosing or doing something else.

podcast imageDavid Hunter, "On Believing: Being Right in a World of Possibilities" (Oxford UP, 2022)
According to many standard philosophical accounts, beliefs are a kind of stance one takes toward a proposition. To believe that Nashville is in Tennessee is to adopt a certain attitude towards the proposition ‘Nashville is in Tennessee’. One advantage of this view is that it seems to make clear how beliefs can be right or wrong: to believe a proposition that is false is to have a false belief, while to believe a proposition that is true is to have a true belief. But in Philosophy things are never simple. An... (2022-Jul-01 • 63 minutes • @NewBooksPhil)
