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.

Public Lecture|

Ethics Matters in Climate Change

Monday 1 December, 6.30 – 8pm
Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE    

John Broome|, White’s Professor of Moral Philosophy and Fellow of Corpus Christi College, University of Oxford  

Chair: Gabriel Wollner|, Assistant Professor, Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, LSE and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow

Climate change is a moral problem. Through our emissions, each of us causes harm to others - something that generally we should not do. Some people are already suffering great harm from climate change. What should we do to remedy the situation? A solution can be achieved only through the coordinated actions of governments, and difficult ethical analysis is required to choose the right actions.

European Provocations|

Accelerate Europe: the geographical imaginaries of accelerationism

Thursday 4 December, 6.30 – 8pm
Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE

Benjamin Noys|, Reader in English, University of Chichester  

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

How can we imagine a way out of the stasis of a Europe mired in financial crisis? The proponents of ‘accelerationism’ argue the need to embrace forces of abstraction and technology that can escape ‘old’ Europe. In this talk, Benjamin Noys will critically explore these alternative geographical imaginaries as attempts to come to terms with the ‘uneven’ forms of capital within Europe.
