What can we learn from conversation that we can’t learn on our own? Agnes Callard (Philosophy, University of Chicago) talks about learning from conversation, the secret to asking a good question, chatting with the ghost of Aristotle, and that time her lecture notes were stolen and it ended up being a good thing for her teaching.
