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.

Gender and the Brain 

Monday 2 March, 6.30 – 8pm
Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE 

John Dupré| , Professor of Philosophy of Science, University of Exeter
Gina Rippon|, Professor of Cognitive Neuroimaging, Aston University

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

Are there ‘hardwired’ psychological differences between men and women? Do these alleged differences show that gender differences in society have a biological explanation? And what does talk of ‘hardwiring’ even mean? In this interdisciplinary dialogue, philosopher John Dupré and cognitive neuroscientist Gina Rippon will debate these and other issues concerning the science and philosophy of gender.

Ethics Matters|

On Civil Disobedience

Thursday 5 March, 6.30 – 8pm
Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE   

Kimberley Brownlee|, Associate Professor of Legal and Moral Philosophy, University of Warwick  

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

Is it acceptable to use civil disobedience to protest against the law? Do we have a moral right, and sometimes a moral duty, to engage in civil disobedience? Should we be punished when we do so? In this lecture, Kimberley Brownlee will discuss the merits of this practice made famous by Thoreau, Gandhi, King, and Aung San Suu Kyi.
