Rob Newman’s Total Eclipse of Descartes

Based on the hit BBC Radio 4 series 'Rob Newman's Total Eclipse of Descartes', Rob's whirlwind tour of philosophy explores 3000 years of good and bad ideas from Pythagoras to driverless cars, by way of levitating Buddhist monks, Pavlov's dogs, Jean-Paul Sartre's mum, Fat Man On A Bridge, T. Rex, Morrissey and wire monkeys. In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help?
