I'm a freelance writer, philosopher and podcaster. My most popular books are A Little History of Philosophy and Philosophy: The Basics (Routledge, 4th ed.). Other books include Thinking from A to Z , Philosophy: The Classics, Freedom: An Introduction with Readings, Free Speech: A Very Short Introduction, Philosophy: the Essential Study Guide, The Art Question, and The Basics of Essay Writing. I've also edited a book about the photographer Bill Brandt and written a biography of the modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger.

I also regulary teach courses on the Philosophy of Art for Tate Modern in London, and occasionally present programmes for BBC Radio 4.

My podcast Philosophy Bites (which I make with David Edmonds) has had over 19 million downloads. Other podcasts include Social Science Bites, Ethics Bites, Philosophy: The Classics, and Free Speech Bites. These are all available from iTunes.
