Forum for European Philosophy

FEPThe Forum is an educational charity which organises and runs a full and varied programme of philosophy and interdisciplinary events in the UK. Our events take various forms but we studiously avoid academic papers. Formats we like include dialogues, panel discussions, public lectures and provocations, all of which are open to the public and most of which are free.

Panel Discussions

On Free Speech  

Tuesday 2 June, 6.30-8pm
Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE  

Lisa Appignanesi, writer, novelist, broadcaster, cultural commentator and Visiting Professor, Department of English, King’s College London  

Rae Langton, Professor of Philosophy, University of Cambridge  

Stephen Law, Lecturer in Philosophy, Heythrop College, University of London  

Peter McDonald, Professor of English and Related Literature, University of Oxford  

Chair: Peter Dennis, LSE Fellow, Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow  

Recent events have provoked a public debate about the right to free speech. In a continuation of this debate, we will bring together philosophers and campaigners to examine the philosophical underpinnings of free speech, and how recent events should affect our thinking about it.

Panel Discussions

What is Enlightenment?

Wednesday 3 June, 6.30-8pm
Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE

Sacha Golob, Lecturer in Philosophy, King’s College London

Ankhi Mukherjee, Associate Professor of English, University of Oxford

Danielle Sands, Lecturer in Philosophy, Royal Holloway, University of London and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow

Chair: Katrin Flikschuh, Professor of Political Theory, LSE

Is the Enlightenment finished or is it an ongoing project? What does Enlightenment mean in a globalised world? In what ways might the concept of Enlightenment illuminate current issues of European identity, secularisation, and the so-called ‘clash of civilisations’? In this event, three speakers return to Immanuel Kant’s seminal essay ‘Answering the Question: What is Enlightenment?’ in order to address these questions.
