UCLA psychologist Paul Abramson argues that if we want a better world, we need to eliminate sexual harm - not just violent rape, but also sexual coercion, sexual harassment, and sexual abuse of children. However, we need to address these issues in a way that preserves the sexual liberties of adults, adolescents and yes, kids, too. Abramson offers his ideas on how to meet both of these goals.

A leading moral and political philosopher, Kwame Anthony Appiah is Professor of Philosophy and Law at New York University. He explores the ideas of the philosopher Hans Vahinger, who argued that our theories of the world involved understanding things "as if" what is in fact false were true. He uses Vahinger's ideas to discuss a contemporary philosophical proposal, due to Dan Dennett, that says that human beings can be understood by way of an "intentional strategy" that "consists of treating the object whose behavior you want to predict as a rational agent with beliefs and desires and other mental states ." Since, as Appiah suggests, we are not fully rational, there is a puzzle about why this should work. Recorded on 02/06/2015.

Former UCSB professor Gerald Horne, the award-winning author of more than thirty books, discusses his newest book "The Counter-Revolution of 1776" which argues that for the country's forefathers, "freedom" meant the right to keep others enslaved-and that the consequences of this definition continue into the present in the form of a racialized conservatism and a persistent racism targeting the descendants of the enslaved.
