Thinking Philosophically About the Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic and the responses to it from both business and government are now dominating the headlines and overwhelming our lives. As we all begin to grapple with the wide-ranging effects of both the disease and the steps being taken to fight it, there’s a need to take a step back and survey the situation with a philosophic eye.

In today’s special episode of Philosophy for Living on Earth, philosophers Onkar Ghate and Gregory Salmieri discussed how philosophy can help guide our thinking about the impact of the pandemic on our lives, our economy, and about our government’s response to it.

Audio of this event is also be available on the Philosophy for Living on Earth podcast (Apple and Stitcher).
