The CHES Seminar honours UNESCO’s celebration of the value of Philosophy and its method to stage a debate on the state of Higher Education and the concept of The University. Amanda Fulford
(Professor of Philosophy of Education and Head of the Dept of Professional Learning at Edge Hill University), will consider what constitutes The University, especially in relation to the idea of community, in the context particularly of recent developments such as Woolf University. Thomas Schramme
(Professor of Philosophy at the University of Liverpool), will respond with his own thoughts on these issues.
Those who register for this event may receive discussion papers by the two speakers in advance and the final part of the seminar will be open discussion involving all participants on the issues and themes.
Refreshments will be available from 12.15pm and the seminar will start at 12.30pm. There will be time for discussion after the seminar for those who are able to stay.
