Event details

Wittgenstein the philosopher has had a huge influence within philosophy and other academic disciplines.

Outside academic life, Wittgenstein the man has inspired artists, poets, film-makers, novelists and dramatists to attempt to capture the fascination of his uniquely intense and austere personality. So how are the two connected? Might understanding Wittgenstein himself improve one's understanding of his philosophy and vice versa?

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.
