Philosophy Talk, the show that questions everything except your intelligence, visited Centenary College in October 2007.
On Saturday, 10/27/2007 at 5-6:30pm in Anderson Auditorium, Stanford philosophers Ken Taylor and John Perry taped a show on the Centenary College campus, exploring the concept of work with their guest,
Students, faculty, staff, and members of the Shreveport-Bossier community asked questions and posed conundrums for Ken, Al and John. Why work? Some would argue that work is an unfortunate necessity for most of us. Others would argue that our jobs add more to our lives. Work can make us into better people, teaching us discipline, creativity, resourcefulness, and other morally good habits. Some jobs might be degrading, but some kind of meaningful work is necessary for a meaningful life. Do Americans work too much? Do we identify too strongly with the work we do at the expense of our families our friends, and even our health? What role should work play in a well-lived life?
At noon on Sunday 10/28/2007, Ken and John broadcast a show from the KSCL 91.3FM studios. Before their show, they discussed philosophy, their effort to bring philosophy to the airwaves, and their take on work.
