America the Philosophical

Hour 1:           Could our consumer-oriented and consumption and celebrity-driven society really be one of the most philosophical in history? Our guest this hour thinks so. We’ll talk with Carlin Romano, Critic-at-Large of The Chronicle of Higher Education and literary critic for The Philadelphia Inquirer. He studies the historical and current state of our country’s thought in his new book “America the Philosophical” (Knopf, 2012).
