This episode is part of a special series we’re running to celebrate the fact we’ve now made more than 200 editions of Table Talk.
We would like to thank everyone who has joined us on the podcast since it launched and we are so grateful to you for helping us to reach this milestone.
To mark the occasion, we’ve invited some friends of the podcast to make their own mini-episodes, looking back at 2021.
It’s been another year that’ll stick in the mind, but we’re doing our best to avoid the C-word (that’s Covid) as we get our guests to reflect on the good, the bad and the ugly of the last 12 months.
Barry C Smith is a professor of philosophy and director of the Institute of Philosophy at the University of London’s School of Advanced Study.
He is also the founding director of the Centre for the Study of the Senses, which pioneers collaborative research between philosophers, psychologists and neuroscientists.
