Hugh Hunter on How to be a Philosopher

Hugh Hunter holds a PhD from the University of Toronto and was a Post-doc at Humboldt University in Berlin. After teaching at a number of Universities in North America, he left Academia permanently in 2018. He is the Author of How to be a Philosopher. He is currently running the Berkeleian Idealism Project, a substack blog/newsletter that discusses why he is convinced the philosophy of George Berkeley is correct.

In this episode we discuss what it means to be a philosopher, how one can become a philosopher, how the present state of academia can help and hinder genuine thinking, and what the future practice of philosophy might look like.
