Stoicism and After: Philosophy and Life
27 April @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Stoicism and After: Philosophy and Life A Lawyers Group event with Professor A. C. Grayling, hosted by Sir Rupert Jackson. Tuesday 27 April | 18:00 BSTBack by popular demand, Professor A. C. Grayling has generously offered to host a sequel to his recent talk on What the Stoics can teach us about living through the Covid-19 crisis. In this Part 2, Professor Grayling will discuss why the present-day revival of Stoicism, based largely on late Stoic thinkers like Aurelius and Epictetus, is interesting because of what it shows about the felt need for ethical principles in a secular age. He will explore the legacy of Stoicism, as well as its relationship to later philosophies and belief systems. As with the original talk, this is a Lawyers Group event, hosted by Sir Rupert Jackson, Chair of our Lawyers Group Steering Committee. One fortuitous result of moving our Lawyers Group events online is that we are also able to offer a number of tickets to the public. Tickets (£20 standard, £10 concession) are available to purchase here.
