Philosophy goes to town!

The Liverpool Royal Institute of Philosophy Lecture Series is an exciting collaboration between the Philosophy Department of the University of Liverpool, the Royal Institute of Philosophy, and important cultural and civic institutions in the City of Liverpool. The Series provides a unique opportunity to hear world experts presenting philosophy that connects with the fabric and history of our City.
