PHILOSOPHY TEA 

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

Thursday January 30th – John Locke and the Social Contract

John Locke and Natural Law

Our second philosophy tea discusses the groundbreaking ideas of the philosopher John Locke (1632-1704) on natural law in his Two Treatises of Government (1689) and the impact they had on the formulation of human rights in the American Declaration of Independence (1776), the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen (1789) and the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948). Locke’s ideas continue to inform debates on human rights and how they can be applied in the world today.


Thursday January 23rd– Eleanor Roosevelt and Human Rights

Eleanor Roosevelt and the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948)

This season’s first philosophy tea discusses Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) and the role she played in creating the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In chairing the committee that drafted the Declaration, Roosevelt drew upon her long involvement in human rights and social justice issues. We also discuss the impact of the Declaration on later statements, legal conventions as well as for national and international politics.


Wednesday 12th February– Nathan Söderblom and Peace

Nathan Söderblom and World Peace

In our third Philosophy Tea we take up the Uppsala-based theologian, Archbishop Nathan Söderblom (1866-1931). We examine his ideas for forging cooperation between different Christian denominations and for using religion to promote peace. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1930. We discuss why he received the award and how the impact of his work has shifted since then.


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 and Folkuniversitetet. In collaboration with The English Bookshop Uppsala.
