Bryan Edgar Magee (12 April 1930 – 26 July 2019) was a British philosopher, broadcaster, politician and author best known for bringing philosophy to a popular audience.
Contemporary British philosophy is experiencing unprecedented openness to influences from abroad. But Bryan Magee spans the crown as a brilliant interviewer, summarising the philosophy of his guests better than themselves. New growth is evident in many areas of traditional philosophy which had been neglected by the logical positivists and the linguistic analysts. This sense of freedom permeates Magee's volume of conversations with leading British philosophers.
