Julian Baggini

Co-Founder of The Philosophers' Magazine, Author

Julian Baggini's presentations are fascinating explorations of ego and personhood. Though the idea of the self may at first seem straightforward, Baggini, as a philosopher, reveals this is not necessarily the case.

Baggini is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Philosophers' Magazine and the founder of Microphilosophy.net. He has also written a number of books, including 'The Duck That Won the Lottery: And 99 Other Bad Arguments,' 'The Pig that Wants to be Eaten and 99 other thought experiments,' and 'The Ego Trick: What Does It Mean To Be You?' As with Julian Baggini's presentations, much of these books deal with questions of personal identity.

Baggini holds Ph.D. from University College London. Beyond his own work, he contributes to a number of newspapers, magazines as well as BBC radio.
