What is the value of Philosophy?
Formerly Philosophy was the preserve of PhDs and the intellectually precocious, until now. Using inspiration from Bertrand Russell, one of Western Philosophy’s greatest proponents, this workshop will disinter philosophy’s hermitic meaning and aid us in answering the question: what is the value of Philosophy?
