How Philosophy Can Save Your Life

coversmPhilosophers from Epicurus to Charlotte Joko Beck offer insights that may change how we view the world and our place in it. In How Philosophy Can Save Your Life, Marietta McCarty (Piedmont Virginia Community College) introduces ideas from the world’s greatest minds, weaving together the various strands as a tapestry for good living.  Also featured: Even bright and hard-working African American students who get into college may not have the math they need to get degrees in science, technology or engineering related fields.  Oliver Hill (Virginia State University) hopes to change that through an innovative study of how best to teach middle school students higher level math skills.

    Thanks for the great show on McCartey’s book. As a math educator, I also found Prof. Hill’s work to be very informative. I think your show is great! I hope the budget cuts don’t affect your important work.
