This talk is organised by the Department of Philosophy at the University of Reading and funded by the Royal Institute of Philosophy.

Join Prof Bryan Van Norden in his quest for a Multicultural Philosophy.

Why have the greatest Chinese thinkers been excluded from the history of ideas? What can we learn from Confucians, Daoists and Buddhists? Come and hear Bryan Van Norden’s exciting talk as he dares us to rethink what we know about human nature, morality and knowledge itself.

Bryan W. Van Norden is Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple Professor at Yale-NUS College (Singapore) and author of Taking Back Philosophy: A Multicultural Manifesto.
