Robert Newman's Total Eclipse of Descartes

Robert Newman

Based on the hit BBC Radio 4 series ‘Rob Newman’s Total Eclipse of Descartes’, Rob’s whirlwind tour of philosophy explores 3000 years of good and bad ideas from Pythagoras to driverless cars, by way of levitating Buddhist monks, Pavlov’s dogs, Jean-Paul Sartre’s mum, Fat Man On A Bridge, T. Rex, Morrissey and wire monkeys. In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help?

‘Intellectually charged and adorable ambitious… a delightfully digestible dose of brain food’ - The Times 

‘He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen…A passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.’ - Sunday Times

‘Gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… hugely entertaining’ - The Guardian
