Professor A.C. Grayling
New College of the Humanities

Humanism, as a non-religious ethical outlook, has its roots in the philosophy of classical antiquity; in particular the thinking of Socrates, Aristotle and the Stoics. In this talk, Professor AC Grayling will explain how this tradition of thought has flourished in many aspects of Western culture since then, achieving a great expression in the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century and afterwards.
