In the twelfth episode of Filosofisk podcast (the third one in English), we are joined by David Chalmers and Anandi Hattiangadi to discuss themes from David’s latest book, “Reality+”: Are we currently living in a virtual reality? How could we ever know? Could such a world be real? And could a life in it be good?
The guests’ philosophical recommendations: “Black Mirror”, TV series created by Charlie Brooker (2011-); “Philosophers Explore The Matrix”, anthology edited by Christopher Grau (2005); “Reality+: Virtual Worlds and the Problems of Philosophy”, book by David Chalmers (2022).
The hosts’ recommendation: “Virtuella världar: filosofiska problem”, the Swedish translation of ”Reality+” (2023).
Filosofisk podcast publishes philosophical discussions (usually in Swedish, but sometimes in English) with invited guests. The hosts are Stina Björkholm, Olle Risberg, and Nils Sylvan. The podcast is produced by Filosofisk tidskrift and the publisher Thales, and new episodes are released once every two months, with a slightly longer summer break.
