    This looks great so I hope my comment will be taken as constructive. It seems like a missed opportunity to have a discussion of equality and not include any women discussants.

      Hi Amy — excellent point! At the workshop where this podcast was recorded, there were several female participants, and I believe that some (maybe all) of them also took part in similar, small conversations with Julian, which I expect he’ll release over time. (This one was the second on hierarchy and equality, but the first didn’t deal so much with Chinese philosophy and so I didn’t note it here.) More info on the workshop, including a picture of all participants, is here: philosophyandculture.berggruen.org/activities/90.
