Philosophizing safety

With Simon Cassin. The business world and in particular the health and safety industry are perfect examples of ‘Plato’s, cave allegory’ in action. We think we can see things as they really are, but in truth much of what we believe is simply a shadow of reality. In this podcast, Simon argues that without opening our minds to the benefits of philosophical reasoning and thought, the best we can hope for is a blurred and shadowy perspective of reality. Adopting a philosophical approach can help us both think about existing questions from a different perspective and explore concepts that we were previously unaware of. There are philosophers of science, politics, law, ethics, epistemology etc. So why don’t we work together and create a philosophy of safety?  It just makes sense.
