This autumn, Professor Peter Wallensteen and Foreign Lecturer Daniel Ogden, both of Uppsala University, will continue their popular Philosophy Tea talks about thinkers who have contributed to our understanding of peace and justice. The two individuals we highlight this spring are the seventeenth-century Dutch philosopher, Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677), and the peace activist and 1905 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Bertha von Suttner (1843-1914); the first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Both were provocative writers who challenged the conventions of their times. Our talks focus on their unique contributions to our understanding of peace and justice.
