Event 366

AC Grayling

The History of Philosophy

Virtual venue: Baillie Gifford Stage

We are delighted to launch the philosopher’s magnum opus. With his characteristic clarity and elegance, Grayling takes the reader from the world-views and moralities before the age of the Buddha, Confucius and Socrates, through Christianity’s capture of the European mind, to the Renaissance and Enlightenment, and on to Mill, Nietzsche, Sartre and, finally, philosophy today. Bringing together these many threads that all too often run parallel, he surveys in tandem the great philosophical traditions of India, China and the Persian-Arabic world.
