The Philosophers’ Book Club: Leo Tolstoy, The Death of Ivan Ilyich (Forum for Philosophy)

16 February, 6:00 pm7:00 pm

 
Join Thomas Karshan and Olga Sobolev at the Philosophers’ Book Club to discuss Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich. Notable for its unflinching portrayal of the process of dying and centrally concerned with the question how to live a meaningful life, Ivan Ilyich is one of the great novellas. In this event, we discuss Tolstoy’s philosophical ideas, his work, and his life.

At the Philosophers’ Book Club, we select a work of fiction for philosophical dissection. Although you are encouraged to read the book in advance, it is by no means necessary.
 

Speakers
Thomas Karshan, Senior Lecturer in Literature, University of East Anglia
Olga Sobolev, Programme Director BSc Language, Culture and Society, LSE

Chair
Jonathan Birch, Fellow, Forum for Philosophy & Associate Professor of Philosophy, LSE
