The Story of Philosophy, 7

On Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos”

In these hard days for me I’ve tried to distract myself with my favorite television series when I was much younger: the thirty episodes of The Champions and the thirteen of Cosmos by Carl Sagan.

  3rd March 1942, midday Ideas on a curriculum for schools.     I don’t believe there’s any sense in teaching men anything, in a general way, beyond what they need to know.
