Dr. Clio Bellenis
What's the talk about?
After philosophy was dismissed by physicist Brian Cox, Dr. Clio Bellenis decided that she had to speak out in favour of this oft-maligned subject. Clio will address a number off topics in philosophy from areas such as metaphysics, political philosophy and philosophy of mind. Philosophers and scientists have complementary skills which have hugely influenced the critical thinking so rightly valued by skeptics.
Admission is FREE and there will be a collection during the interval (suggested donation £3-5).
Dr. Bellenis is a child and adolescent psychiatrist with an MA in Philosophy. She is also an atheist, skeptic and a feminist.
