The Institute of Arts and Ideas (IAI) was founded in 2008 "with the aim of rescuing philosophy from technical debates about the meaning of words and returning it to big ideas and putting them at the centre of culture." Today, the IAI sponsors a series of short videos, often featuring panel discussions (which can be browsed via IAI Player); an online magazine featuring a range of essays (IAI News); a series of free online courses (IAI Academy); and a podcast (IAI Podcast). One British magazine describes IAI as "Europe's answer to TED." Like the popular American organization, IAI features commentary on a wide range of subjects and debates. One recent video features a conversation about lying between philosopher James Mahon (author of Lying for the Sake of Truth), comedian and actress Helen Lederer (of Absolutely Fabulous) and psychiatrist Mark Salter. Recent IAI Academy courses explore the science behind psychedelic drugs and the future of money.
