Interviews with Contemporary Philosophers – By Phin Upham



Phin Upham “Philosophers in Conversation: Interviews from the Harvard Review of Philosophy,” is one of my favorite projects I worked on as Editor-in-Chief of the review. It’s a unique collection of thirteen fascinating interviews with contemporary philosophers. But the interviews featured in this collection are a little different than traditional interviews with philosophers. Most of them were conducted by Harvard students and staff members of the review, which means many of the students had the opportunity to interview either their instructors at Harvard or philosophers outside of the University whom they had read and liked. Because of this reason, the interviews have a casual tone, making them accessible to someone who didn’t’ necessarily major in philosophy. Although accessible, the content is still rich and thought-provoking. In addition to interviews, the book also features a photograph and a bio for each philosopher. I wrote the preface and the forward is written by Thomas Scanlon. This book is a great gift idea for yourself or a friend who might be interested in philosophy.
