    What are some good collections of relatively accessible lectures?

    I just finished reading the collection of lectures called Philosophers of our Time compiled by Ted Honderich. It consists of essays from the annual lectures given at the Royal Institute of Philosophy in London. It was highly readable without being too technical and gave a good sense of some current contemporary philosophical approaches with writers like Chalmers, Searle, Foot, etc. It was something a 3rd or 4th year undergrad could sink their teeth into. Meaty without being too technical. Any other collections or books of lectures like that?

    Edit: Mixed quality, I'm sure. I obviously didn't go through every one of them.
