The Concept of Debt – A Philosophical Essay
The Concept of Debt – A Philosophical EssayDownload iCal Event
Location: Walker Room, Heythrop College
Research seminar series: Hospitality: identity and friendship in a post-secular age
This seminar will be lead by
Dr Alexander Douglas. Dr Douglas writes "I will present part of a book I'm writing, entitled 'The Concept of Debt: A Philosophical Essay'. In this section of the book, I aim to discover what grounds the intuitively plausible but ultimately problematic notion that one ought always to pay one's debts. I want to see what light can be shed on this question from an exploration of the semantics and etymology of 'debt' and related terms."
After the seminar, we will have the opportunity to go for a drink in the Goat at High Street Kensington.
There is no need to book for this seminar, please just come along.
