Arts Wednesday 28 November 2018
This week, I am starting with a replay of Part 1 of a Six-part series I recorded almost 5 years ago, entitled Beauty. During the course of the series, I speak with a philosopher, a plastic surgeon, a make-up artist and body builder, an art theorist, a mathematician and a tattoo artist. This week I start with the very distinguished Dr Simon Longstaff, Director of the Ethics Centre, who tells us what the ancients had to say about beauty.
My special guest at 11:00 am is linguist, Barbara Lasserre, talking about her latest book, Words That Go Ping: the ridiculously wonderful world of onomatopoeia.
Music today will start and finish with beauty and, in the middle, we’ll hear some onomatopoeia.
Do join me!
