Philosophy Public Lecture Series Spring 2019: “Being Governed”

From Tuesday 22nd January 2019 to Tuesday 19th March 2019

The University of East Anglia is hosting a series of five free public lectures sponsored by the Royal Institute of Philosophy. The lectures will run from 22 January to 19 March.  

In modern democracies, we are supposedly self-governing. But what does it mean to govern ourselves? And do we, really? These are the questions being explored in ‘Being Governed’, the 2019 Philosophy Public Lecture Series. Over five different events the ways in which our lives are being governed will be discussed by philosophers from UEA, Oxford and Kings College London, by way of economics, rules, nature, social sciences and populism. Please visit the website for further information.

Lectures start at 18:15 and will be followed by a Q&A.

Free to attend, all welcome. Some events are followed by a free drinks reception.
