Being Human Festival – A short history of philosophy with a radical green edge

(UEA, Norwich) – Wednesday 23 November | 18.00–19.30

Professor Catherine Rowett and Dr Rupert Read are both lecturers in the University of East Anglia’s philosophy department and recently stood as parliamentary candidates in the 2015 elections. Drawing on these experiences, they will speak about the overlaps between philosophy and radical politics, and give a brief overview of the history of philosophy from a broadly green perspective before taking questions from the audience. The speakers aim to provide a stimulating genealogy of how our cultural ideas have shifted and what this can teach us about how to deal with the current growing ecological crisis.
