The Philosophers’ Book Club



6.00–7.15pm, Tuesday 1 June



Join us for the Philosophers’ Book Club, where we’ll be reading The Philosopher Queens, edited by Rebecca Buxton and Lisa Whiting. From Hypatia and Hannah Arendt to Ban Zhao and Angela Davis, this new collection of essays places twenty prominent women thinkers on the centre stage of philosophy.

At the Philosophers’ Book Club, we select a work for philosophical dissection. Although you are encouraged to read the book in advance, it is by no means necessary.
