Meditations on Insurance and Society 7: Towards A Philosophy Of Insurance

Published on 31 August 2023

Welcome to Insurance Covered summer special miniseries Meditations on Insurance and Society.

Normally on this podcast Peter is joined by a guest to discuss an aspect of the wonderful world of insurance. But, this August, we are doing something different. Instead of our normal fortnightly podcast, we are releasing an 8 episode mini series focusing on the role that insurance has played throughout history in shaping society. They will incorporate a bit of history, a bit of philosophy, some psychology, a lot of insurance and… who knows what else.

In part seven we look at:

  • The philosophical thinking behind insurance
  • the framework for understanding why insurance is such a potent force in society
  • The five F words that help us understand the philosophy behind insurance: Fragility, Fear, Future, Faith and Freedom
  • insurance as a mirror to our own insecurities 

We hope you enjoy the latest episode of our summer special series.
