SOAS World Philosophies Lecture Series


The SOAS World Philosophies Lecture Series is a bimonthly lecture series organised by the World Philosophies team at SOAS University of London. It features guest speakers from around the globe who are experts and top notch scholars in various aspects and themes in World Philosophies broadly construed. At SOAS, the World Philosophies Programme is carefully designed and structured by a dedicated team to offer a rich, diverse and comprehensive approach to philosophy as a form of human inquiry. It explores core issues and themes in philosophy from world philosophical traditions such as Indian Philosophy, African Philosophy, Western Philosophy, Confucian Philosophy, Buddhist Philosophy and Islamic Philosophy. The World Philosophies Programme takes a decolonised approach to philosophy seriously and pays close attention to the margins of traditional philosophy. The bimonthly lecture series is conceived out of the same decolonised and diverse approach to philosophy, providing an important avenue for distinguished scholars in different philosophical traditions to present their research and ideas in a way that is discursive and conversational.

The event usually takes place on the last Friday of every two months (February, April, June, August, October and December) at 14:00hrs to 16:00hrs BST. But due to holidays, the December event, takes place on the first Friday of the month. The event is open to the public and it is online via Zoom. We will be exploring a hybrid lecture here in London in the near future
