Thought Club – Conversations with a philosopher
Monday 8 – Thursday 11 April 2019 | Irwell Riverside, Salford
Professor Michael Brady wants to know what is occupying your mind.
You’re invited to bring him your philosophical questions – either alone or with friends, family or colleagues. No question is too big or too small, and no topic is off limits.
Join Michael for a cup of tea and an hour of conversation to explore your question.
Maybe you lie awake at night thinking about all the suffering in the world, or perhaps your kids are asking questions about death, or your colleagues are forever debating ‘the right’ thing to do. Whether you fall asleep reading Nietzsche or don’t see the point in philosophy at all, Michael would like to talk to you.
The conversations will take place at Quarantine’s Tenancy house in Irwell Riverside, Salford – a short walk from Manchester City Centre.
Michael Brady is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Glasgow and Quarantine’s philosopher-in-residence. His main research areas are the philosophy of emotion and the nature and value of suffering. He has published monographs on these subjects, including Emotional Insight (Oxford University Press, 2013) and Suffering & Virtue (Oxford University Press, 2018). He wrote Emotions: The Basics (Routledge, 2018) and co-edited Philosophy of Pain (Routledge, 2018).
Various time slots are available for individuals or groups, but places are limited and registration is essential. Reserve your place via Eventbrite.

This event is part of Tenancy, a year-long artistic project created and produced by Quarantine exploring how rapid urban development is affecting communities.
