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.”
