Following the success of last year’s event, CAPPE & the Royal Institute of Philosophy are holding a Second Philosophy Study Day on Thursday September 24th. The day focused on a combination of contemporary political themes and key philosophical questions aimed at students already studying philosophy and who have encountered philosophical and ethical debate via Religious Education, Sociology, English or Politics and are interested in learning more. With academics from the University of Brighton and from across the UK, those attending will consider: How far should freedom of speech go?; Can we avoid complicity in suffering?; How might we create a better world?; What does it mean to live a "good life” in contemporary society?
This day wass an opportunity for Year 12, Year 13 and Access to HE students to experience lectures and seminars and to participate in debate with each other and the staff and students studying at the University of Brighton.
