This Page is dedicated to interviews or talks by 20th and 21st century philosophers.  Needless to say, I do not always agree with the positions that these philosophers defend.  (Rarely do philosophers entirely agree with one another.)  But given that UP@NIGHT often touches on philosophy, I thought this would be a good addition to the site.  From time to time I will update this page.


Bertrand Russell – Message to Future Generations


Simone de Beauvoir


The Putnam-Rorty Debate and the Pragmatist Revival (Several philosophers interviewed, including Putnam and Rorty)


John Searle on the Philosophy of Language


Hannah Arendt  (Fascinating interview, but if you don’t speak German, check out comments on its YouTube site regarding issues with the translation.)


Jürgen Habermas – On democracy and his philosophical roots


Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault


Nancy Fraser – Marx and Feminism


Robert Brandom

In these comments on his book, Making it Explict, Brandom discusses the relationship between Hegel and Pragmatism about 8 minutes into the interview.


Jacques Derrida – Fear of Writing
