PHILOSOPHY TEA 

This winter Professor Peter Wallensteen and Lecturer Daniel Ogden will continue their popular Philosophy Tea talks. 


Saturday September 12th – Margaret Atwood: The Handmaid's Tale 

Inspired by George Orwell’s iconic dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-four, Margaret Atwood set about in 1984 to write a dystopia from, as she has said, “the female point of view”. That such a dystopia was needed can be seen by the popularity of the novel itself and the HBO TV series by the same name (2017-). In our first Philosophy Tea of autumn 2020, we focus on Atwood’s novel and how it treats a number of highly relevant issues, not least among these being what happens when authoritarian governments use the suppression of women’s rights to help maintain their hold on power. 

Our talk will be followed by a short, informal discussion, for those interested, led by members of Folkuniversitetet, Uppsala.

Tuesday December 1st: Albert Camus – The Plague 

In this Phikosophy Tea we discuss Camus’ highly topical, The Plague (La Peste). Camus was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1957. The Plague has often been seen as an allegory of the Nazi Occupation of France during World War II. But it is also part of a longer tradition of plague literature, a genre pioneered by Daniel Defoe in his A Journal of the Plague Year (1722), a work that Camus quotes in the epigraph to his own novel. In a more general sense it is about the human condition and our vulnerability to life threatening circumstances, be they caused by viruses or the actions of our fellow humans. How we respond to these circumstances defines us as human beings.


Tuesday November 17th: Alva Myrdal – The Game of Disarmament

Now that 75 years have passed since the first use of nuclear weapons, disarmament has again become important to consider. We do this by taking up   the thinking and achievements of one of the pioneers in nuclear disarmament, Alva Myrdal. She was born in Uppsala in 1902, was active in the international negotiations in the 1960s and 1970s and was awarded the Nobel peace prize for her efforts in 1982. She was behind the idea of setting up SIPRI, still a world-leading organization in this field. Her book The Game of Disarmament is a classic. In our conversation we will take up her disarmament strategy as well as the role of women in peace activism in general.


Daniel Ogden is a researcher and teacher of utopian ideas, for many years at Uppsala University and now at Mälardalen University. 

Peter Wallensteen was the first holder of the Dag Hammarskjöld Chair in Peace and Conflict Research (1985-2012) and is now Senior Professor at Uppsala University.

Each Philosophy Tea lasts one hour. The sessions are run in English. 

Tea and scones will be served. All welcome. 

The discussions will be recorded and available as pod casts.

With the support of Uppsala University
In collaboration with Folkuniversitetet and with support by Folkuniversitetsföreningen.
