Forum: Six Degrees of Bertrand Russell - Prof. Peter Stone

When: Sunday, February 18 2018 @ 11:00 AM - - 12:15PM
Where: Humanist House
1180 Coleman Ave.
San Jose, CA 95110

Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) was one of the most influential public intellectuals of the 20th century. A leading philosopher, humanist, atheist, and peace activist, he has receded from the public eye since his death almost fifty years ago. Peter Stone, who teaches political science at Trinity College Dublin, will argue that Russell is more relevant than ever today. He will illustrate Russell’s importance by discussing Russell’s many connections to other leading people of his day—philosophers, politicians, artists, and others—and what we can learn from them.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.

This event is sponsored by Humanist Community in Silicon Valley
