Spring: The Metaphysics of Pregnancy and the Start of New Life

Pregnancy is relevant in some way to all of us - all of us are the result of a pregnancy, and many of us will be pregnant at some point. But what is the metaphysical relationship between the pregnant organism and what it is pregnant with? For example, is a foetus contained within or a part of the pregnant organism? This talk will explore possible answers to this question in order to illuminate some of the philosophical aspects of springing into new life.


These series of talks are linked to the "Four Season" exhibition at the City Art Gallery from 3 February to 21 April 2018.  The talks are free of charge to attend.
