6 Ideas in Search of a Home

To celebrate BFM’s 6th Anniversary, Night School puts on a special episode looking at 6 ideas we each encountered in our lives and through our work. In this free-wheeling episode, we talk about Antonio Gramsci’s “common sense”, Edward Said’s notion of the role of “the intellectual”, Buddhism’s concept of “impermanence”, the power of “historical materialism” as well as Alexis de Tocqueville’s understanding of “enlightened self-interest”.

This and more than 60,000 other podcasts in your hand. Download the all new BFM mobile app.
