John Hansard Gallery University of Southampton

Event details

The Danish philosopher, Sören Kierkegaard, called faith 'a crucifixion of the understanding'.

If he is right, are faith and reason necessarily opposed to each other? And, if so, should we believe our hearts or our heads?

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.
