The Minds of Whales (the Forum)

2 March 2017, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

What is it like to be a whale? How do they think and what do they feel? How are their social groups structured, and how do whale ‘cultures’ arise? And how has human thought and human culture been influenced by interaction with whales? In this dialogue, two internationally recognized whale experts — prize-winning author Philip Hoare and marine biologist Luke Rendell — discuss the inner lives of whales.

Philip Hoare, Professorial Fellow in English, University of Southampton; Author of Leviathan, or The Whale (Fourth Estate, 2008)
Luke Rendell, Reader in Biology, University of St Andrews

Jonathan Birch, Assistant Professor, Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method (LSE) and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow
