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.
