Speaker information

Dr Tom Stern, UCL Philosophy

This lecture explores the relationship between philosophy and theatre via the notions of truth and illusion. Theatre is traditionally taken to be a place for illusions and deceit while philosophers, on the other hand, like to present themselves as truth-seekers. Dr Stern’s research explores this apparent conflict.
