Philosophy Challenge

What is the meaning of life? Are we really free? What would Spinoza make of the internet? Bring along your pressing philosophical questions to this fast-paced quiz where two teams of philosophers will compete to dazzle you with their wit and amaze you with their profundity.

Another LSE event, but this time of a very different type.

The event is free. Seats are available on a first come, first serve basis. Please go directly into the lecture hall. We will meet AFTER the event in front of the building. Please look out for the meetup sign. If you want, you can join me in a pub closeby.

    I had my personal challenge of introducing myself to a beautiful Chinese lady and I missed it because of my shyness. She was sat next to me and all I could say to her was if she knew John Stuart Mill!

      I may have lost the girl of my life but I found out the mining of life in one of the answers given by the lecturers. Useful but I would preferred to be oblivious about that and get the girl instead :)

    I think there may be an error with the map to the event. The instructions say Kingsway in Holborn and the Map says its near New Cross Gate near Lewisham. Could we get some clarification? Thanks

    Oops, when creating the event, I somehow felt I had forgotten something :-). It's a free event on a first come first serve basis. Not sure how popular the event will be, so it's best to come at 6pm in order to get a seat. The talk itself starts at 6:30pm

  • Anna

    Hi Henning, sounds great, but I haven't understood how it works: Do I need to book a ticket for this event? Or show up early? Thanks, Anna

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
