Reasoning: Panel on the Delphic Oracle

After listening to the BBC post on Aristotle's Poetics that I reviewed on yesterday's blogpost, I listened to a BBC piece on the Delphic Oracle. The panel was Paul Cartledge, A G Leventis Professor of Greek Culture at Cambridge University; Edith Hall, Professor of Classics and Drama at Royal Holloway, University of London; and Nick Lowe, Reader in Classical Literature at Royal Holloway, University of London. Since the piece is from In Our Time, the host is once again Melvyn Bragg, but luckily he's a little less arrogant and annoying. Although most of the information of Delphi is pretty basic (especially for anyone who has read Herodotus' Histories), the panel is fabulous.
