Our work in prisons

The Royal Institute arranges philosophy sessions in prisons.

Discussions focus on traditional philosophical questions but have also included matters relevant to the lives of people in prison. Is blame essential to morality? Does hope do more harm than good? Can you forgive someone who shows no remorse?

We intend to expand on this work and arrange more sessions next year.

We’re also very happy to support the work of Philosophy in Prison.
