Bringing together world-leading scientists, musicians, philosophers and politicians including Roger Penrose, Natalie Bennett, Paul Krugman, Fiona Shaw, Mike Skinner, Polly Toynbee, Lianne La Havas, Tariq Ali, Lawrence Krauss, and John Searle for debates, talks and wild parties. This year’s programme examines the elements of reality that might soon turn out to be illusions.
This two-day conference brings together prominent researchers from several fields in which philosophical issues about the practices and conventions involved in interpretation have had a profound impact on subject matter—linguistics, law, cognitive science, archaeology, architecture, literature, and music.
