The 2000 cult film 'Dude, where's my car?' portrays two young men, Jesse (Ashton Kutcher) and Chester (Seann William Scott), on a journey to find a car. In this episode, UCL philosopher Luke Fenton-Glynn suggests they could have turned to philosophy to find it, and that policy-makers could do the same to tackle hard practical problems such as climate change.
Luke is a Senior Lecturer in the Philosophy Department at UCL. His research focuses on philosophy of science and formal theories of rational belief. He is an avid Manchester United fan (please don’t hold that against him).
