Sutras & Stuff: A Philosophy Podcast

Sutras & Stuff is a podcast that gives you bite-size morsels of Indian philosophy, paired with contemporary topics. Its basic theme is that there are always connections from the present to the past, even across cultures and languages. You don’t need to know anything about Sanskrit or India to listen, just to be curious about how what’s new might be connected to what’s old. A mix of interviews and narratives, the podcast is hosted by Malcolm Keating. Learn more about him and the show here.

In this episode, I talk with Tom Davies, Seymour Reader in Ancient History and Philosophy at the University of Melbourne, about how understanding Indian philosophy in relationship with the rest of the ancient world helps us reflect on what philosophy is, as a human activity, in different cultural contexts. Note: This is the final episode of the regular season, concluding the series of interviews with philosophers who taught Philosophy and Political Thought at Yale-NUS. Not every philosopher participated, but interviews with all those who did are now available as episodes one through ten. But at least one bonus episode is coming later this summer!
