Bryan Edgar Magee (12 April 1930 – 26 July 2019) was a British philosopher, broadcaster, politician and author best known for bringing philosophy to a popular audience.


The basic drive behind real philosophy is curiosity about the world, not interest in the writings of philosophers.




Superstitions and belief in magic are perennial in just the same way as religion, and something near to being universal among mankind; and why this is so may be interesting, but in most cases the beliefs themselves are devoid of interesting content, at least to me.




The Copernican revolution brought about by Kant was, I think, the most important single turning point in the history of philosophy.
