The second Annual Royal Institute of Philosophy Graduate Conference in Philosophy will be held at the University of the West of England, Bristol. The theme for this year is the Self.

The Self is at once both evident and alien; intimate and inexplicit. It seems to be something with which we are intimately acquainted—more than this, it is thought to be the very essence of what we are—but yet remains elusive. It is like Augustine’s comment on the notion of time: if no one asks me, then I know what it is. If I wish to explain it, I do not know.

Attendance is free of charge, but please register by email on: [email protected].
