Description

Dr Henry Merivale defends Hume’s position as the most important Philosopher in history during the Balloon debate at the 2015 OUP Philosophy festival. https://global.oup.com/academic/category/arts-and-humanities/philosophy/ Some of philosophy's most important historical figures are at risk! Which of them will you save for posterity? In this debate, a range of editors and authors from OUP's Oxford World's Classics and Very Short Introduction series defend philosophers from destruction. They will fight it out to keep their favourite in the balloon but ultimately, the decision is up to you! Participants include: Kathryn Sutherland (Adam Smith), Roger Crisp (Aristotle), Chris Janaway (Nietzsche), Henry Merivale (Hume), Andrew Bowie (Heidegger), Christopher Taylor (Socrates). This event was part of the OUP Philosophy Festival which took place at Blackwells bookshop. © Oxford University Press
