lightbulbs with the title Philosophy in the Open

Philosophy in the Open: The OU Philosophy Media Archive, contains over 30 hours of footage of interviews and debates between some of the most celebrated mid-to-late 20th century British philosophers, in addition to television presentations by Open University Philosophy lecturers. These videos, many of which were originally broadcast on the BBC, were made in the early days of the OU to support its teaching in Philosophy. They are a snapshot of a golden age of philosophy in Great Britain. Newly commissioned short essays by leading contemporary thinkers accompany these videos.

Exhibition prepared by Dr. Dan Cavedon-Taylor and Professor Derek Matravers.
