This event is free and open to the public.

As part of the Recollection Series at Pusey House, Dr Ralph Weir of the University of Lincoln will ask what a culturally and scientifically informed person should think about the idea of the soul, discussing a number of commonplace misconceptions, and reflecting on why the idea of the soul evokes such intense hostility in today's intellectual climate. He will conclude by explaining why he thinks the idea of the soul is here to stay.
