Did you know that even though Sherlock Holmes says he is using deductive reasoning, in actuality he is using abductive reasoning to solve his cases?
In this episode of The City, Cate MacDonald and David Gilbert talk with Dr. Phil Tallon, editor of the book, The Philosophy of Sherlock Holmes. They explore why Sherlock Holmes remains so popular, what kind of superhero he is, his hyper-imaginative ability, the ethics of killing off a fictional character, and the nature of friendship and enmity.
Featuring: Cate MacDonald, David Gilbert, Dr. Phil Tallon
