10-Minute Talks: Philosophy in prison

Professor M. M. McCabe FBA

M. M. McCabe FBA explores how introducing philosophical discussion into prisons may matter. If a society is measured by how it treats its worst off, we have reason to think hard about how we manage the lives of those in prison. Philosophy – in particular, the collaborative doing of philosophy – has a role to play.
