Reflections on reality →
Professor Raymond Tallis looks critically at the idea of ‘reality’, at ways of thinking about the question ‘What is real?’, and at the belief that we should look to natural science to provide the most authoritative answer to this question. Professor Tallis particularly focuses on the idea that science (evolutionary theory and physics) has demonstrated that what passes for reality in everyday is in fact an illusion.
Freedom, Choice, and the Unmodified Body - Professor Clare Chambers →
In this talk, Clare Chambers will argue that the concept of free choice is inadequate when it comes to our bodies. Instead, she will argue for the philosophically complex and politically significant concept of the 'unmodified body': a body that is allowed to be good enough, just as it is.
