Welcome to my official website! I am Marianne Talbot, the Director of Studies in Philosophy at The Department for Continuing Education, University of Oxford. I am interested in getting as many people as possible interested in philosophy!
The best way to get people interested in philosophy (in my opinion) is to get them to do philosophy. Have a good look round this website and you’ll see what I mean. You might like to start with the Philosophical Conundrum, or you might prefer to watch some of my philosophy podcasts or read my blog (see the ‘recent posts’ link to your right).
In pursuit of my aim, and in addition to running this website, making podcasts and writing my blog, I keep up a Facebook page (Marianne Talbot Philosophy), and tweet regularly on @oxphil_Marianne.
I also, of course, write books, and if you click here:
you can not only see a list of these but you can also buy them! (For which I shall be everlastingly grateful)
Please come and join me and everyone else who uses this site!
Weekend schools now finished for summer. Philosophical Society Members’ Day on September 17th (see: www.oxfordphilsoc.org. uk). I shall be speaking at the Oxford University Alumni weekend on September 20th (https://www.alumniweekend.ox.ac.uk/). If you’re coming to that, do come and introduce yourself! I am also doing a study day for the U3A in Scotland on September 25th. If you’re a member of the U3A, and you live is Scotland I shall be delighted to see you.
