Can We Learn From Suffering?

Mon 24 October 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm BST

Free
Frida Kahlo, 'The Broken Column'

24 Oct 2016, London

Is there evidence to suggest that suffering can educate or even improve us? If so, do some types of physical or mental suffering have more value than others? What is it that we learn? Does suggesting that suffering has meaning or value validate or demean the experience of suffering? In this event, three philosophers including Life of Breath PI Professor Havi Carel will address these questions. 

This event is free and there is no need to pre-register.
