During the autumn, Professor Peter Wallensteen and Senior Lecturer Daniel Ogden will continue with the popular series 'Philosophy Tea talks'. On this occasion, Naomi Klein's book 'This changes everything' will be discussed. Each Philosophy Tea session lasts one hour. The sessions are run in English. Tea and scones will be served. All welcome.

In our second Philosophy Tea we discuss Naomi Klein’s timely and controversial contribution to the climate change debate, This Changes Everything (2014). The book is a valuable account of the debate at that time, as well as an excellent introduction to today’s climate crisis.

This summer’s extreme weather occurrences, the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report warning about climate tipping points, and the ongoing UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, which has been billed as the last chance to get runaway climate change under control, has made her 2014 analysis more relevant than ever.

Tickets (service charge included): 150 sek, students under 26 years 70 sek, pensioners 125 sek.  Tea and scones included.
