Podcast Episode 01: Bryan Frances

It’s our first podcast! I interviewed Bryan Frances, a philosophy professor at Fordham University.  He writes a lot about the appropriateness of suspending judgment on difficult issues in politics, morality, and philosophy.  Check out his website for some of his papers.   Here’s a quote from the interview:

“It’s almost like God has this tease. We’re just smart enough to find these problems and issues, but we’re not smart enough to actually tackle them with a reliable way of finding the answer. Maybe that’s a good definition of philosophy: it’s those set of problems that we’re intelligent enough to grasp, but not intelligent enough to have any reliable methodology to solve.”
