    Founded in 2008, the IAI’s aims- in their own words- ‘to rescue philosophy from technical debates about the meaning of words and returning it to big ideas… Not in aid of a more refined cultural life, but as an urgent call to rethink where we are’. The website offers a wealth of resources including: The Philosophy for Our Times Podcast, a weekly programme tackling current ideas, and IAI Player which contains over a 1000 video debates and talks. Latest additions include: Corruption and Climate Change, The Fascination with Evil, The Limits of Logic, Return to Radical Feminism and Duchamp’s Deception.

    An online audiovisual library of videos, photos and sound recordings of the world’s birds. It is available to the public free of charge. Aiming to offer at least one video, photo or sound recording per species initially, the long term objective is to include material covering as many subspecies as possible and a variety of biological aspects (e.g. behaviour, feeding, breeding) for every species. The site main sections are: Explore, Upload and What’s New (i.e. new species on the site). Searching capabilities are quite decent and results can be filtered by type of material (i.e. photo, video, sound). Up-loading is free, but users need to be registered. The site also offers specially curated quizzes to test the users’ ornithological skills.
