LSE Philosophers will be taking to the stage for two special philosophical events at this year’s LSE Literary Festival.

The 2017 LSE Literary Festival takes place 20–25 February. Now into its 9th year, the School’s annual literary festival features talks, discussions, film screenings and workshops with some of the world’s leading academics. The theme of this year’s festival is “Revolutions”.

On 22 February, Professor John Worrall will explore the impact of scientific revolutions on humankind’s view of itself in “The ‘Universe’ starring man?”, chaired by Professor Roman Frigg.

On 25 February, Professor J. McKenzie Alexander will chair a group of panelists in discussing the philosophical implications of scientific advancements like artificial intelligence and human enhancement in “The Future of Humanity”.

All of the LSE Literary Festival’s events are open to all and free to attend, but tickets are required. Further information is available on the festival website.
