Thursday 24 October 2019

ANU Philosophy's Professor Philip Pettit has been invited to present the prestigious London Annual Lecture, hosted by the Royal Institute of Philosophy. His lecture is titled 'My Three Selves'.

Abstract: "Who or what is my self? An elusive will-o-the-wisp, as Hume took it to be? A focus of existentialist anxiety: a self to which I should be true? A moral barrier to altruism: a self I should keep in its place? Or perhaps there is no single answer to the question. Perhaps there are many selves to the person I am."

The event will be held on 25 October in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street. More information is available at https://www.royalinstitutephilosophy.org/events/annual-lectures/london/.
