Gutter Philosophy

In May and June 2013, Reverend Graham Long ran a six week course at Wayside called, "Gutter Philosophy".

The course was an excursion through the history of Western philosophy from the gutter up, rather than from the university down.

A recording of each session was made and can be viewed below by clicking on the links.
