At each seminar, we discuss a short philosophical text, or tackle a philosophical question. This month's text is Rousseau's Discourse on the Origins of Inequality. The text is available here:
We want to keep these events reasonably small, so that we can keep the discussion focused, and so that everyone can participate. Please book your place by using the RSVP button. If you book and then find that you cannot make it, please cancel your booking, so that someone else can take your place.
The initial notice of this event stated that there would be some building works in the National Theatre, and that we might have to find another venue. I have now checked the venue, and it looks as though we can be in the ground floor foyer of the National Theatre after all.
However, our normal niche is closed off. We will try to be at the tables just to the right of the Lyttleton Cloakroom (as you stand facing the Cloakroom counter), but we may have to be somewhere else in the foyer. We will have a notice on the table saying "Philosophy for All", but we might not be there until a few minutes before our start time of 7.45. So if you get there earlier and cannot find us, please have another wander round the foyer at 7.40 to find us.
If you cannot find us anywhere on the ground floor, try the next floor up where there is a bar area, but we will only move there is there is a problem with the ground floor.
This seminar will be conducted by Anja Steinbauer.
