Originally featured in the 03.23.2017 Scout Report, Elucidations continues to provide visitors with engaging episodes on thought-provoking topics, such as plagiarism and quantum mechanics.
From the University of Chicago comes Elucidations, a monthly podcast featuring interviews with contemporary philosophers. Each interview is hosted by University of Chicago graduate students in philosophy. On this website visitors can explore and download all current and past podcasts (as of this write-up, 118 in total) and check out suggested related readings. Episodes are structured conversationally and discuss topics meant to incite reflection. For example, in Episode 92 Kristie Dotson of Michigan State University discusses how we access the veracity of information and how larger social forces, such as political oppression, can impact our ability to make these assessments. In another (Episode 90) Asta Sveinsdottir of San Francisco State University discusses the social construction of our identities and argues that each aspect of our identity, such as our gender, sexuality, or race, "makes..[us]..susceptible to certain special entitlements, while also putting you under certain special obligations."
