Dr Damon Young is a prize-winning philosopher, author and commentator. His popular books and columns have won him a reputation as a clear and witty communicator of ‘big ideas’. Damon will discuss his writing, in particular his latest book 'The art of reading', where he explores the virtues and rewards of reading. (Chris-86)
Philosophy could be considered the most vital educational tool to endure from the ancient world. Yet it’s rarely taught or employed as a way to understand what’s happening around us today.
In his most recent book, Philosophy in the Garden, Damon Young explained how philosophy is more relevant than ever to our lives. In this enlightening discussion, Damon and fellow philosopher (and science-fiction author) Russell Blackford will examine how emerging technologies and schools of thought are combining to map out a fascinating future for the human mind.
This entertaining event will cover all the big issues, from faith to time travel, graphic novels to superhero movies, as our guests run the gamut of how philosophy interacts with technology, religion and humanity in films, books and our daily lives.
