Robert Newman: Total Eclipse of Descartes


In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help? This sparklingly brilliant new show tries to give you the answer.  Rob Newman (stand up legend, best-selling novelist, Radio 4 Sony Award Winner) attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.
