Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cyril Edwin Mitchinson Joad was an English philosopher and broadcasting personality. He is most famous for his appearance on The Brains Trust, an extremely popular BBC Radio wartime discussion programme. He managed to popularise Philosophy and became a celebrity, before his downfall in the Train Ticket Scandal of 1948. Joad was born in Durham, the only son of Edwin and Mary Joad. In 1892 his father became an Inspector of Education and the family moved to Southampton, where he received a very strict Christian upbringing. Joad started school at the age of 5 in 1896, attending Lynam's Preparatory School in Oxford and then Blundell's School, Tiverton, Devon.show more
