Details of the Next “Inner West Council Philosophy Talk"

Title: “Politics in an Age of Polarisation”

Speaker:  Assoc Prof. Chris Fleming  (Philosophy, WSU)


We live in an age where political rivals are increasingly seen not just as opponents, but as enemies. In this talk I will try to outline the way this plays out in our attempts to explain what is going on in the world (like religious or political violence) and the implications this has for political philosophy, and politics more generally.

Thursday, August 22
6:30pm - 7:45pm
Free event - All welcome - Light refreshments provided (from 6pm)
Bookings online or call 9367 9266
