'Friendship' Among Friends
with Professor A. C. Grayling
Monday 9 December 2013, 8-9pm
£10 in advance (£12 on the door)
To mark the publication of his new book, A. C. Grayling roves the rich traditions of friendship in literature, culture, art, and philosophy, bringing into his discussion familiar pairs as well as unfamiliar—Achilles and Patroclus, David and Jonathan, Coleridge and Wordsworth, Huck Finn and Jim.
Grayling lays out major philosophical interpretations of friendship, then offers his own take, drawing on personal experiences and an acute awareness of vast cultural shifts that have occurred.
There will be book signings at the end of this event with Daunt Books.
