Walter Benjamin discussion audio


Thinking Allowed on BBC Radio 4 are currently broadcasting a short series of programmes on social theory. The audio podcasts of the shows are available permanently. The most recent show was a discussion of the work of Walter Benjamin that featured Esther Leslie (whose books on Benjamin are in my reading pile) and Jonathan Rée. The programme covers Benjamin’s work on the Paris arcades, materialism, media and the ongoing value of his ideas. The previous week discussed Foucault’s work and next week, the final show, is on Goffman.
