SALON LONDON with Tali Sharot and Robert Rowland Smith

Thursday 1st November 2012 6:30pm - 9pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event

Salon, London's leading cultural fest showcases the UK's leading lights in science, arts and psychology. Salon covers everything from beat boxing to quantum mechanics to extreme survival skills, all within easy walking distance of a well-stocked bar and a large helping of gung ho.

Now, specifically for Foyles, Salon curators Helen Bagnall and Juliet Russell are putting together a very bookish series.

For our first Salon at Foyles, we will be comparing the effects on the brain of looking on the bright side of life with neuroscientist Tali Sharot, author of The Optimum Bias; with the pleasures of not knowing, and not thinking with philosopher Robert Rowland Smith, a process he terms 'Endarkenment'. And just so we avoid a fight between the two eminent academics, we'll have a harpist on hand to ease your mind, provide history of the angelic instrument, said to soothe your brain as you make up your mind what to think.


Venue: The Cafe at Foyles, First Floor, 113 - 119 Charing Road, London WC2H 0EB
