Is Religion A Consolation Worth Having?Mr Simon Blackburn (Cambridge University), Roger Scruton (Oxford University)
Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
Professors Simon Blackburn (Cambridge) and Roger Scruton (Oxford) debate the question above – one that is fundamental to our understanding of being human in the 21st century. It is a question that in recent times has generated more heat than light. Roger Scruton and Simon Blackburn are two of Britain’s most well known and distinguished philosophers. They have strong and opposing views on the question, but they have thought more deeply on it than many. Their respective positions will be expounded and challenged in the debate, but in an atmosphere conducive to further understanding. The debate will be chaired and moderated by Melvyn Bragg.
