Radio History Philosophy February 22, Thursay, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - The Scottish Enlightenment. Quote: "An Edinburgh bibliophile takes Paul Kennedy through his library of amazing books that were published in Scotland in the late 18th century, during the heyday of the Scottish Enlightenment. At the time, Adam Smith, David Hume, James Boswell and The Encyclopaedia Britannica were runaway best sellers. But obscure titles from a wide range of intellectual disciplines reveal the astounding diversity of Caledonian cogitation. If the Scots didn't actually invent the modern world, they certainly explored most of its many nooks and crannies, and wrote about it." Info: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/features/schedule

Radio Philosophy History February 23, Friday, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - The Anatomy of Tyranny. Quote: "Authoritarianism is on the rise around the world, with populations everywhere believing that the political status quo is broken and needs "stronger" leadership. Timothy Snyder wants to push this tendency back, maybe even into oblivion. A history professor at Yale University who's written widely on Europe and the Holocaust, he takes an unusual approach in his little book, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century. It's not a sweeping historical analysis, but a collection of observations and suggestions on what forms resisting authoritarianism can take. Some of them are simple, like reading more, or not repeating popular phrases, or simply believing in the truth. This episode features a lecture he gave in Toronto and a conversation with host Paul Kennedy." Info: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/features/schedule
