Society & CulturePhilosophy

Elucidations is an unexpected philosophy podcast produced in association with the University of Chicago. Each month, Matt Teichman sits down with a person of philosophical interest to discuss their view on a topic. Now and again, he is joined by an awesome co-host. Some of the guests are philosophy professors, some of the guests are other kinds of professors, and some of the guests are not professors. Either way, the goal is to develop a feel for how the guest’s perspective hangs together interactively. See for privacy and opt-out information.

  • Great podcast

    This is a great podcast that really lives up to it's name re. doing an excellent job at clarifying some knotty and complex philosophical ideas. Matt does a great job re. pitching it at a level that most people, with a moderate ability for sustained attention, can get a pretty good grasp of the ideas being “elucidated” (which is often not the case, e.g. when picking up and trying to make it through the typical philosophy tome). And if one lacks the ability for sustained attention, given the typic... more

  • Elucidations is like ghee. It's clarified better.

    Have listened to each and every episode at least twice, some several. My continued and growing appreciation of Elucidations has recently been enhanced by Nozick’s “Invariances.” Episode 109: Matt Teichman and Toby Buckle was thrilling.
