‘Home’ means more than a roof over our heads. It can be crucial to our sense of ourselves and our well-being. So what might it mean to have a right to a home? And what is lost when we lose our home? We discuss the politics, philosophy, and poetry of home, exploring the fundamental connection between home and human well-being.

About the author

Forum for Philosophy

Forum for Philosophy is a non-profit organization promoting philosophy. We host events, produce podcasts, and publish an essay series to showcase the work of contemporary academic philosophers from all philosophical traditions, often in conversation with each other and with academics from other disciplines. In all of our activities, we promote thought-provoking discussion of science, art, and politics from a philosophical perspective.
