Talk by Michael Holroyd
The many sides of Caesar's genius profoundly influenced the course of Western Europe. There can be no one portrait of such a man: the speaker shows him as he appeared to his contemporaries-aristocrat, radical, general, historian, reformer, dictator-and places him ' against the great perspective of the centuries.'

First of two talks by Professor Gilbert Ryle on the problem of mind
How far is the habitual distinction between mind and body justified? Professor Ryle suggests that the separation is a false one and should be avoided: it tempts us to describe people's lives in terms of two distinct series of processes, one menial, one physical. But is the description valid? If we look carefully at what we know about human beings, Professor Ryle maintains, we see that it is not.
