By imaginatively transporting us to fantastic planets and brave new worlds, science fiction films can act as a powerful tool for addressing the philosophical issues of the day, as well as providing a prescient insight into those of tomorrow.

In this lecture, James Mooney (Centre for Open Learning, The University of Edinburgh) will explore the relationship between philosophy and science fiction films and consider what the latter can teach us about metaphysics, morality and what it means to be human.

This event is free to attend but you must book. Tickets will be available via the above link from 10am on the day of the event.
