Update 23/7/17: A fourth talk has been added to the programme on 3rd August
Jasper Elgood has given philosophical talks at the gallery for a few years now in July. This year there will be
three four talks. The topics are ‘Mysticism and Class‘ on 13th July, ‘Continuity‘ on 20th July and ‘Environmental Ethics: I’ll fault s’abêtir‘ on 27th July and ‘Mysticism and Class part 2: The politics of the contemplative life’ on 3 August. The talks start at 7:30pm. All welcome. No charge.
For a taste of previous talks, there are some recordings from 2015 in this post.
The area of philosophy that Jasper will be talking about on 27th July is sometimes called Environmental Philosophy, Ecolosophy or Environmental Ethics. There is an interesting article on this subject here: “Three Challenges for Environmental Philosophy”, Jim Moran, Philosophy Now (2012) https://philosophynow.org/issues/88/Three_Challenges_For_Environmental_Philosophy
