This is a video of a talk I gave at a mad but wonderful event last night, run by a friend of mine, called the Oliphant Street 6X9 talks – where six speakers talk for nine minutes on various things (I went slightly over my allotted nine minutes…) Last night we had talks on Cardinal Newman, contradiction, Renaissance parties, the Lord’s Prayer, and I gave a talk on how experimental psychology has undermined the idea, from Greek philosophy, of the rational autonomous self, but perhaps we could still develop such a self through philosophical training.

The video is about 15 mins long, in two parts.
