with Julian Baggini, Jonathan Rée and Andrew Pyle

Join our philosopher-in-residence and his guests for an evening of philosophical conversation with time for your questions and contributions.

Jonathan Rée rejects the ‘condescending smugness’ of traditional histories of philosophy. In his new history of philosophy in English Witcraft he abandons the standard, tired narratives and presents the history of philosophy as a haphazard series of unmapped forest paths, a mass of individual stories showing endurance, inventiveness, bewilderment, anxiety, impatience, and good humor. Expect the same from our evening of conversation with Julian Baggini, Andrew Pyle (Bristol University) and you.
