It is 30 years since the Berlin Wall fell, changing the world forever. In this special expanded edition of Philosophical Times, Julian looks back at the news stories around the time of the fall to dig out the philosophical issues behind the headlines and consider their enduring relevance for today.

Get £2 off with a ticket to In Accord, a night of music and poetry inspired by the fall of the wall.

Our Philosopher in Residence Julian Baggini is back this autumn cross-pollinating our programme with conversations, questions and ideas.

Join Julian in his regular monthly look into philosophy behind the headlines. Taking his cue from the weekend papers, he unpacks the often under-explored philosophical issues tied up with the big issues of the day and leads their discussion. Suggest which news stories you’d like to be discussed on the day. Anything could come up: from issues of war and peace to sporting triumph and disaster.
