‘Meet Joshua Cohen, Apple University’s Resident Philosopher’

Philip Elmer‑DeWitt has a brief interview with Apple University faculty member Joshua Cohen on his Apple 3.0 podcast:

What is Apple University? And how did it persuade a distinguished intellectual like Professor Cohen (Yale, Harvard, MIT, Stanford) to join its full-time faculty and deliver lectures to Apple executives on such esoterica as the discovery of the Higgs boson and Glenn Gould’s recordings of Bach’s Goldberg Variations?

I caught up with Prof. Cohen as he was packing for Toronto where the Glenn Gould Foundation has invited him to share with the public two of his “extraordinary” Apple talks.

Well worth a listen.
