Center for the Humanities: A Conversation with Olly Thorn, Creator of Philosophy Tube

October 7, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Oliver “Olly” Thorn is the creator of Philosophy Tube, a wildly popular YouTube channel that takes an insightful and delightfully irreverent approach to figures such as Aristotle, Kant, and Hegel in order to understand some of today’s most pressing issues like toxic masculinity, dataveillance, and transphobia. His channel has been called “raw and bruising” and also “an extravagant educational show that teaches philosophy to a global audience hundreds of thousands strong.” Thorn started Philosophy Tube out of his desire to give away his philosophy degree for free in response to rising university tuition fees in the UK.
