The first Philosophy in the City festival takes place in Liverpool from 9th to 24th October 2010.
Tonight in the Concert Room in Liverpool Cathedral George Pattison, Professor of Divinity at Oxford University, on faith in the modern world
The festival will bring leading philosophers into venues throughout the city, including the Bluecoat, Tate Liverpool, Sefton Palm House, FACT, News from Nowhere and Next to Nowhere, and Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral and Roman Catholic Cathedral.
The University of Liverpool’s Department of Philosophy is organising this festival to celebrate and explore the role of philosophy within our cultural life and heritage, and to make philosophical thinking accessible to new audiences. Tying in with the ‘Touched’ theme of the 2010 Liverpool Biennial, we’ll be asking both speakers and audiences to think about how they are touched by philosophy.
