HOW THE WORLD THINKS
TeenTalk / Thurs 08 Nov / 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Ever wondered how where you live might affect the way you think? British popular philosopher Julian Baggini has travelled the world to explore how what we call philosophy differs from East to West, and how this affects the way communities work around the world.
From the role of religion in societies to their understanding of justice, law, and politics, Julian journeys through the complex map of human thought around the world to explore how, and why, the world thinks.
Julian Baggini will also give a talk to adults, see our Evening Salon with Julian Baggini.
