Love, etc. two-day workshop

Registration is now open for a workshop which aims to explore themes in the philosophy of love (broadly construed).

Love, etc. will interrogate the nature of love, the phenomenology of love, the success of different accounts of love, the influence of love on moral questions and the philosophy of sex.

The workshop is free to attend, but registration is required and places are limited. Please register before 1 September 2019.

We can offer a small bursary to postgraduate students towards travel and accommodation costs.

This event is kindly supported by: Society for Applied Philosophy; Centre for Ethics and Metaethics at the University of Leeds; The Aristotelian Society; MIND; The Analysis Trust; Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied Centre, University of Leeds.
