Led by Minna 'Ms Afropolitan' Salami, the books we'll read are less about philosophy as an academic subject, but rather the books are selected with the mindset that philosophy is about investigating all human experience. We may therefore include philosophical novels and poetry too.
This month discusses All About Love, which sees bell hooks at her most provocative and intensely personal. In it the renowned scholar, cultural critic, and feminist skewers our view of love as romance. In its place she offers a proactive new ethic for a people and a society bereft with lovelessness.
Our conversation will be fun, light-hearted and informal in other words, nothing like a serious seminar on philosophy!
Takes place in our third floor Philosophy section. Tickets are £8 or £6 for students and Waterstones cardholders and include a glass of wine or soft drink. Book ahead as places are limited.
