    Philosophy for busy people. Listen to a succinct account of the philosophy of Berkeley in just one hour.Berkeley's philosophy denies the existence of matter. According to his work, there is no material world, only our own experience. So when you don't see something, it isn't there. Then how does the world persist? Because it is supported by the continuous perception of an all-seeing God. Berkeley's ideas appear to take empiricism to a ludicrous extreme. But is this quite so absurd as it seems?

    What's causing our current high food prices? Is organic food really better for us? Do we care about Fairtrade or food miles? Should we buy locally or from the supermarket?

    Eating has been described as the "most political act we do on a daily basis", with our choices affecting our health, landscape, climate, and economy. Food: What Are We Really Eating? lifts the lid on food production and the dizzying array of food choices we face each time we shop.

    Looking at how Britain pays its way in the world today. Like Andrew Marr's History of Modern Britain or Michael Palin's Himalaya, the book will have a coherence and life beyond the television series, looking at some issues in greater depth, and telling additional stories to illustrate some of the ideas. This book is about the things that Britain produces in order to pay its way in the world, from physical goods that we can see and feel, to intangible services that are much harder to quantify.
