Can art be thought of as a philiosophical practice? Why is art like a strange tool? These are just a few of the fascinating ideas of our guest tonight ALVA NOË, Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley.    His new book is STRANGE TOOLS: ART AND HUMAN NATURE. Tune in for a lively and thought provoking discussion about art, philosophy and what art means in our society.

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with legendary cartoonist, writer and artist BILL GRIFFITH, famous for his work on comics like “Young Lust”, “Tales of Toad” and his long running strip “Zippy the pinhead”. His new book is titled INVISIBLE INK: MY MOTHER’S SECRET LOVE AFFAIR WITH A FAMOUS CARTOONIST. It is in turns a mystery, an autobiography and an intimate history of a marriage: his parents.
