Me at Hay this year:

Do come along to Hay-on-Wye to their philosophy and music festival ‘Where the light gets in’ ( ), this May/June. I’m on the programme in the following 3 events. The 2nd event will hopefully be fairly explosive; and I am delighted to have Nassim T. responding to me (though I suspect it will end up more of a double-act), in the 3rd:

Philosophy Session

In the Beginning was Nature

Alistair McIntosh, Benny Peiser, Rupert Read. Razia Iqbal chairs.
‘All of our political parties are [allegedly] pro-environment now, on the grounds that being green is in everybody’s interest. But should we rather see our attachment to nature as a spiritual response to our place in the universe, or would this risk a return to heathen superstition?

Green politician and philosopher Rupert Read, ecological activist Alistair McIntosh, and director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation Benny Peiser explore our relationship to Nature.’
