PHILOSOPHY TEA 

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


Wednesday 30th October – Arundhati Roy


The Ministry of Utmost Happiness (2017)
The Tragedy of Kashmir and the Partition of India.

Set in New Delhi and the troubled region of Kashmir, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by award-winning novelist, social critic and political activist Arundhati Roy gives imaginative voice to lives affected by the traumatic events that have formed modern India. Our Philosophy Tea will look at these events and how they are portrayed in the novel, and the consequences they have for the identity of contemporary India, the world’s largest democracy.


Tuesday 19th November – Immanuel Kant

On Perpetual Peace (1795)
Immanuel Kant’s Philosophical sketch for World Order.

Immanuel Kant’s Philosophical sketch for World Order became  important  to peace movements in the 19th century and inspired  world organizations, such as the League of Nations and the United Nations,  in the 20th Century. This Philosophy Tea discusses its role in the 21th century with inputs also from Kant specialist Rebecka Lettevall, Malmö University.
