We are proud to continue our partnership with Lancaster Arts at Lancaster University and delighted to welcome Professor A.C. Grayling back to Lancaster University for what will be a remarkable ‘In Conversation’ event.
A.C. Grayling’s The History of Philosophy, is the first authoritative and accessible single-volume history of philosophy to cover both Western and Eastern tra-ditions. From one of the world’s most eminent thinkers, Grayling asks what we have learned, but also what progress is still to be made.
Please join us for what is sure to be a highly stimulating conversation on the history of thought and ideas, and the value of critical thinking. For students of life of all ages.
