Philosophy and Literature have a lot to say to each other, and at Roehampton, these two disciplines are very connected. In this session, you can join a philosopher and a literary scholar in discussing Greta Thunberg's incredibly inspiring activist speeches. You'll discover what philosophy has to say about the ethics of activism and climate change, and what literary theory can tell us about the power and rhetorical force of Thunberg's speeches. Come along and discuss your own opinions with lecturers and students as part of our Literature and Philosophy book club!
