 Summer School 2019: What? How? Why?

The London School of Philosophy is delighted to announce registration is now open for the next in our tremendously successful annual fixture hosted in Conway Hall in the heart of Central London.

The theme for 2019 is “Philosophical Questions: What? How? Why?”

Philosophy is typified by critical questioning. This three-day event will provide the inquiring mind with a philosophical feast of answers provoked by questions of definition, causation and purpose. We are planning to dedicate each day to one of the framing questions:

Wed 3 July, What? Questions of existence, identity and definition
Thurs 4 July, How? Questions of explanation and causation
Fri 5 July, Why? Questions of meaning and purpose
