A short (optimum online attention span is apparently 105 seconds) video made by Open Road Media - the US publishers of the ebook of Running with the Pack (and The Philosopher and the Wolf too). 

Running with the Pack is published in the US in November. Pegasus Books (the publishers of The Philosopher and the Wolf) are publishing the printed version and Open Road Media the ebook.

This is a video of an appearance I made at the How The Light Gets In Festival, in Hay-on-Wye, Wales, in May of this year. I was talking about my book, Can Animals be Moral? Hugo, the family dog, kindly agreed to accompany me. The video was made by the Institute of Arts and Ideas.

Completely forgot. I've a new book out, in fact it's been out for the past six weeks or so. I lost track in all the recent traveling. Entitled, Animal Rights: All That Matters. It's part of Hodder's All That Matters series. Details here

Here is an interview with Amanda Smith (recorded a while back when I was in London). It aired on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's radio show, The Body Sphere, on Sunday.

Also interviewed is the estimable Damon Young - philosopher, martial artist and, I gather, keen gardener. I highly recommend his book, Distraction, BTW.

Edit: Or if you prefer the printed word, try here.




How odd! It has just been brought to my attention that someone has apparently bought my old website address, and is using it to advertise weight loss products. Obviously, this has nothing to do with me.

13.58Online Culture Editor Martin Chilton has been speaking to philosopher Mark Rowland, who has food for thought, and taken this lovely snap of Rowland and his son Brenin.

 Mark Rowland, the Professor of Philosophy at the University of Miami and author of the bestselling The Philosopher and the Wolf, said: "Memory is very inconvenient, forcing itself on you. And memory is horrendously unreliable, even with events that happened relatively recenty." He quoted Friedrich Nietzsche, who said: "Memory says, 'I did that.' Pride replies, 'I could not have done that.' Eventually, memory yields.”
