The London Lectures: Paul Giladi - The Agent in Pain: Alienation and Discursive Abuse

Friday 11th October 2019 5:45pm - 7:15pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

We’re delighted to be teaming up with author and philosopher Julian Baggini and the Royal Institute of Philosophy to bring you The London Lectures—a series of wide-ranging talks by experts in the field of Social Epistemology.


How Do We Know? The Social Dimension of Knowledge


Knowledge is often thought of as something that we each individually have: something inside our own minds. But our knowledge depends on other people's testimony and expertise. And what we know depends on what our society makes it possible for us to know, either formally or informally, through social norms and practices that suppress some ideas and privilege others.


Paul Giladi
The Agent in Pain: Alienation and Discursive Abuse


In the first lecture of the series, Paul Giladi, Senior Lecturer of Philosophy at Manchester Metropolitan University, will draw attention to a currently underdeveloped notion of pain and alienation in order to sketch an engaging account of the harms of what one may call ‘discursive abuse’—namely practices of silencing, wilful ignorance and violating a person’s integrity as a knowing agent.


Paul Giladi is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Manchester Metropolitan University and editor of Responses to Naturalism: Critical Perspectives from Idealism and Pragmatism (Routledge, 2019).
