September 11: War, Sacrifice, and the Media

The media often present a sanitized and one sided narrative of war, torture and other forms of violence that blots out the faces and silences the voices of many of the main victims: the refugees, the victims of unjust imprisonment and torture, and the immigrants virtually enslaved by their starvation and legal disenfranchisement.  John and Ken probe the limits of the media representations of war and other forms of violence with renowned UC Berkeley professor Judith Butler, author of Frames of War: When Is Life Grievable?  This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Marsh Theatre in San Francisco.


With Ken Taylor and John Perry of Stanford University. Produced by Ben Manilla.


Philosophy Talk originates live, Sundays at 10am, Pacific Time, from the studios of KALW, 91.7 FM, Local Public Radio, San Francisco.
