Painless intro to philosophy
Robin Sachs has a wonderful voice, rich and unstressed, perfectly paced.
Robb Stark should have studied Machiavelli's "The Prince" before becoming King of the North.
Some philosophers discussed: Hobbes, Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Sartre, Nietzsche.
Some concepts discussed: the nature of happiness, moral luck, chivalry, metaphysical fatalism, game theory, just war theory
I learned how lucky I am to be living in the "Media Age" of 2014 with so much good material at my fingertips. What was considered good stuff in the 1960s and 1970s when I was a kid now seems weak and barely interesting. There are a few of Neil Simon's plays I would listen to again, but I'd be in no hurry. Want good, old comedy? Try Moliere!
LA TheaterWorks does a good job casting and directing these radio performances. I just wish the material was better.
Audible could at least have listed the plays in the order they appear in the audiobook. There is no way I could jump around to find my remembered favorites. Helping readers navigate within books is something Audible is VERY POOR at and SHOULD IMPROVE, as I have commented several times already.
