In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Isaiah Berlin’s birth, Oxford University has posted four of the famous philosopher’s broadcast lectures on the web. Entitled Isaiah Berlin Centenary (iTunes, feed), the lectures date from the 1950s, when Berlin was reknowned as a historian of ideas and as an eloquent foe of totalitarianism.

For more on Berlin check out the The Isaiah Berlin Virtual Library and this appreciation of Berlin in The Independent.
