The Romantic Road | BBC Radio 4, August 3rd-7th 2009, series rebroadcast September 2016
The Romantic Road takes the listener on a personal journey through the German cities where the great philosophers of the nineteenth century lived and worked. It explores the impact that these thinkers have had on each stage of one man’s life. From the early romanticism of student days in Germany, via Nietzsche and Schopenhauer, to Ernst Bloch’s philosophy of hope and the Kantian responsibilities of parenthood, Stephen Plaice’s series, narrated by himself, illustrates the power of philosophy to shape personal experience.
Along the way, the series reflects on the Germany which has been locked away behind the two World Wars, and examines our contemporary prejudices towards the Germans.
