Philosophy Now on Holiday
In its second episode, Philosophy Now, Please considers the concept of the ‘holiday’. What is it, and why should we go on one? While Rick Lewis suggests the holiday might be regarded as a moral duty toward our loved ones, Mark Fielding admits to be rather bad at them. Anja Steinbauer discusses a history of holiday, and Nikki Dekker wonders what a good holiday consists of: rest, play or education? A special guest tells us all about his favourite holiday. But in the end, Jane O’Grady says, we may travel the world, but we can never escape ourselves.
