Undergraduate Welcome Week Event: Philosophy Balloon Debate
MS Teams

Balloon Debate. A hot-air balloon carrying an array of philosophical folk is sinking, and needs to drop weight – who will stay and who will go? We’ll hear cases from Tom on Aristotle, Max on Zhuangzi, Andrew on Émilie du Châtelet, Stephen H on Immanuel Kant, Eileen on Jane Austen, and Daniele on Frantz Fanon.

If you would like to attend this event as a spectator, please email d.woods@warwick.ac.uk to be added to the invite. You are welcome to join for as much as you like.
