New podcast mini–series

Writing about web page

A new podcast mini-series is up, this one related to Peter Pormann’s new book on Medieval Islamic Medicine:

Lot’s of stuff covered in this one, but it’s very interesting. There’s a good discussion in episode 3 on Baghdad and its importance in the translation of Greek and other learning into Arabic, and thus by a process of the spread of ideas back to europe. Considering the current state of that city it’s good to be reminded of its critical role as a hub of knowledge and learning.

Anyway, hope you enjoy it!
