Philosophy matters - Bristol, 21 March

I'm chairing this discussion at the Wills Memorial Building, 18:00-19:30

Why study philosophy? Is philosophy valuable to those in society who don't engage with it directly? Is a degree in philosophy a good preparation for employment? How does philosophy contribute to civic life and culture, and can it help us to be happy?

Speakers include: Professor AC Grayling (Birkbeck College, University of London), Professor Baroness Onora O'Neill (University of Cambridge), Professor James Ladyman (University of Bristol), Dr Havi Carel (UWE Bristol). Full details here.
