The Royal Institute of Philosophy Lecture Series

Chinese Philosophy and the Meaning of Life

Philosophy goes to town! This autumn, the Philosophy Department of the University of Liverpool in collaboration with the Royal Institute of Philosophy, is launching a new series of high profile public lectures bringing the most exciting topics in philosophy to the city of Liverpool.

You are cordially invited to the very first of these lectures featuring the renowned Harvard scholar Michael Puett, Professor of Chinese History and Anthropology and the author of the Sunday Times top 10 bestseller The Path, which has been hailed as “brilliant” and “fascinating”, “a philosophy book grounded in the here and now” and “brimming with nuggets of insight”.

The University have partnered with us here at National Museums Liverpool to offer you this unique opportunity to hear one of the greatest experts in the field introduce you to the timeless wisdom of ancient Chinese philosophers pointing the way to a life of genuine fulfilment and meaning. There could be no better venue for this lecture than World Museum,where we are currently hosting the blockbuster exhibition China's First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors.

The talk will be followed by a drinks reception.
