Description

Alfred North Whitehead characterised the European philosophical tradition as 'a series of footnotes to Plato'. We beg to differ. Influential as the Big Beards were, the modern world began with Adam Smith and the Scottish Enlightenment. Join Fringe stalwart, BBC Radio 4 regular, creator of Jokenomics and Economedy and general intellectual magpie and dilettante Simon Evans for a brisk canter through the 250-year legacy of The Sage of Kirkcaldy. May contain visible hands. Praise for past work: 'A masterclass' ***** (Scotsman); 'Jaw dropping' ****½ (Chortle.co.uk).
