Philosophers have long preferred abstract thought experiments to the world of clipboards and laboratories. But a new generation of academics is embracing innovative research techniques and technology, and challenging long-held assumptions about free-will, ethics and what it means to be a good person. Kojo talks with Kwame Anthony Appiah about practical uses for philosophy in today’s world.

Guests
