G. E. M. Anscombe seminar — Friday 31st July

In the next seminar in our ‘Portraits of Integrity’ series Rachael Wiseman (Durham University) will introduce selected writings by Elizabeth Anscombe from the late 1950s. Discussion will focus on Anscombe’s attacks on the ‘hypocrisy of the age’ and on a philosophy which she saw as ‘flattering’ that spirit. More details, including an introduction and readings for download are available here.

All are welcome — please contact us if you would like more information or are interested in attending. Thanks to the British Academy we are able to offer help with expenses.
