Time to stop and think

Every Friday morning I treat myself to reading the weekly 3am Magazine philosophy interview by Richard Marshall. I don’t always understand them but it’s good to have a point in the week when you stop and think. Some of the interviews have been collected by OUP into a book, Philosophy at 3am, edited by Marshall. My copy just reached me – it’s out in the UK in a couple of weeks. Now I can stop and think at any time. If I were teaching philosophy, I’d be putting this book on my students’ reading list, for an accessible and even witty overview of the frontier of the subject. There are many more interviews online, so maybe a second volume will follow.
