Plan for the day:
- The undergraduate sessions
3 undergraduate sessions, each lasting 20 mins for the talk itself, and 20 mins for discussion.
- ‘Further study in philosophy’ session
An optional session for delegates interested in further study in philosophy. The session will be with Naomi Eilan (MPhil Convenor) and Thomas Crowther (MPhil Convenor). This is an opportunity to get a sense of the difference between the various higher degrees (MA, MPhil, PhD), what they each involve, what to think about if you’re keen to apply for any of them, how funding works, and so on. You’ll be able to ask any other questions you might have too.
- Keynote lecture
A talk by Professor Naomi Eilan, titled 'Psychopathy, Understanding, and Character'
