Grief (Forum for Philosophy)

15 November, 6:00 pm7:15 pm

Grief is something we all experience in our lifetimes, but how well do we understand it? Can we grieve well? Is mourning for public figures very different to the grief we feel after the death of friends and family? What is it like to grieve in the midst of something like a pandemic, where so many lives are touched by tragedy? And what have we learned about grieving though this pandemic, where death is both very publicly discussed but also hidden by the demands of social distancing? We explore the nature of grief and grieving.
