 When was Once Upon a Time?

In this event our thought-provoking speaker, Peter Logan, will contradict the common sense view that there are thousands of myths and that they change continually over time. He sets out to demonstrate that not only is there just one myth, but also that there has always been only one myth, and it has been incredibly influential in the development of our society. Using evidence from anthropology and psychology he will show that there has been a continual mythical thread throughout history and pre-history, and indeed is still pertinent to the functioning of society today.

Peter Logan is first and foremost a thinker. He has a degree in history, although he did this for pleasure rather than as a springboard to a career. He has lead an eclectic life with various occupations ranging from playing in a rock-and-roll band, working in the docks to working in a psychiatric hospital. It was in his most recent job working for a book distribution company where he developed a particular interest in anthropology.

Doors 10.30. Entry £3, £2 concs./free to Conway Hall Ethical Society members.
