Nazism pervaded every level of German society, and philosophers were not immune. While much scholarship has understandably focused on recriminations of key figures, tonight's panel reflect on some broader questions raised: Can philosophy help us understand the nature of evil? And does thinking philosophically really help us live better lives? Joseph Cohen is a Lecturer in Continental Philosophy, University College Dublin. Simona Forti is Professor of Philosophy, University of Piedmont and Visiting Professor of Philosophy, The New School for Social Research, New York. Brian Klug is Senior Research Fellow in Philosophy, St Benet's Hall, University of Oxford. Dr Peter Dennis is a Fellow, Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, LSE and Forum for European Philosophy Fellow.
