Ticket price

Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

John Marenbon explains how medieval philosophy stretches far wider than the universities of Christian Europe and how the period was one of the most exciting in the history of thought. He discusses some of the key themes of universals; mind, body and mortality; foreknowledge and freedom; society and the best life.  Marenbon has taught at Cambridge and the Sorbonne and currently holds a visiting appointment at Peking University. His books include Pagans and Philosophers: The problem of paganism from Augustine to Leibniz and The Cambridge Companion to Boethius.
