The Human Paradox (Forum for Philosophy)

29 March, 6:00 pm7:00 pm

 

For Alan Montefiore, philosophy is a lived and living practice that entails ‘getting one’s feet wet’. In a career spanning over seventy years, Montefiore’s thinking has addressed issues including identity, reason, values, and responsibility. His work is resolutely non-dogmatic and accessible, advocating a philosophy that aims to ‘get into a position from which to see the world… in the most appropriate or illuminating way’. In this event, we celebrate the publication of Montefiore’s most recent book, Philosophy and the Human Paradox: Essays on Reason, Truth, and Identity.
