Philosophical Bibliotherapy Session at the Philosophy Now Festival 8.9.13

ImageWhich work of philosophy  has changed the way you see the world and your place in it?

If philosophy has any point at all, surely it must be that it can help us to understand ourselves, our experience and how to live better lives. This isn’t to say that reading philosophy should always make us happy. Sometimes the function of a work is to disturb us, making us reassess our most cherished assumptions.

In this session we will talk about whether philosophy fulfils this therapeutic role of enabling us to if not find a cure, at least come to terms with the human condition. Bring your favourite book, or come prepared to talk about why it is important to you…and why you think other people should read it.

The session is happening: 12:00pm Sunday 8th September 2013

at the Philosophy Now Festival at Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL. Nearest tube: Holborn

This all-day festival will include 36 other events including talks, debates, workshops, and philosophical games for the whole family, and runs from 10:00 – 22:00.
