Philosophy Amongst the Ruins

Dr Noel Kavanagh

It is in times of crisis, when all seems in ruins, that philosophy can do its best work. Dr Noel Kavanagh talks us through how philosophers like Cicero and Descartes can help us think through the distresses of our times, as they did in their time.

When all can seem lost and at the moment when things seem at their worst, philosophy can provide the anchor, helping navigate the choppy waters of our times.

Dr Kavanagh presents this fascinating talk in his characteristically accessible and down-to-earth style.
