MARY MIDGLEY

& WHY SHE MATTERS

6.00–7.15pm, Tuesday 17 November

 


 

A fierce opponent of the over-reach of science and a lifelong advocate of the humanities, Mary Midgley’s writing ranges across animal ethics, religion, science, and the natural world. In all of these areas, she appealed to a philosophy that is humble and attentive, connecting philosophical thought to lived experience. Join Gregory McElwain, Ellie Robson, and Panayiota Vassilopoulou to celebrate Midgley’s life, work, and legacy, and ask what can she teach us about how to live.
