Event details

Why do we expect great thinkers to be good people? Heidegger was famously a member of the Nazi party and the argument has long raged over whether this compromises his philosophy.

But does it? And if so, how? Do we have the same expectations of great artists? Great scientists?

Seeking food for thought during your lunch hour? Join us at the John Hansard Gallery for the Philosophy Café, a series of free, informal discussions open to all. No previous knowledge required – just an appetite for ideas.

Each session begins with a short talk by one of the University’s philosophy experts, followed by an open forum for debate.

The Philosophy Café is organised in partnership with Philosophy at the University of Southampton, part of Humanities.
