Philosophy Tea

 
 

This autumn, Professor Peter Wallensteen and Lecturer Daniel Ogden will continue their popular Philosophy Tea talks in an expanded series of three talks. The three individuals they will highlight have contributed to global thinking in different ways: through high-level diplomacy, utopian writings and historical studies.

The series starts with diplomat and economist Dag Hammarskjöld (1905-1961), a practitioner with a philosophy as seen through his actions as Secretary-General of the United Nations. He will be followed by the American author Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935), focusing on her feminist utopian novel, Herland (1915); and then we will discuss the 14th century Arab philosopher, Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406, or 732-808 A.H., i.e. according to the Islamic calendar) from Tunis, best known for his Prolegomena, or 'Introduction' which introduces a seven-volume history of the world. All three provide alternatives to dominant Western, realist, masculine, perspectives on international affairs, and thus yield new insights into peace and justice.
