Leaving Europe Behind – Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels (1726)
In our first Philosophy Tea for autumn 2018, we follow the sea adventurer, Lemuel Gulliver, on a voyage of self-discovery away from his native England. Through his encounters with Little People, Big People, Flying Islands and Talking Horses, Gulliver is forced to rethink his views on European superiority. But when he starts to question his own humanity, perhaps Gulliver has gone too far.
Ticket price 100 kr, Students 30 kr, Senior Citizen 80 kr (including fees)
Each Philosophy Tea session lasts one hour, with the final twenty minutes being reserved for an open discussion with the audience. The sessions are run in English.
Tea and scones will be served. All welcome. Philosophy Tea is supported by Uppsala University and the sessions will be disseminated as pod casts.
