20 March, 2015, 10.30am-6.30pm  Passionate Politics Workshop  Torrington Room, Senate House

There is an influential tradition of thought, stretching from the Stoics to Kant and Rawls, according to which the passionate side of human nature is construed as antithetical to the good life. Taking a fresh look at this relationship, the UCL-based research group 'Passionate Politics' engages with the way affective forces shape political movements, personal and group identities. 

In the first public workshop of the series, political theorists, philosophers, anthropologists, scholars of literature and music have been invited to explore how their disciplinary fields conceptualise the passions. This workshop will showcase how thinking across disciplinary boundaries can open up new vistas on the relationship between the passions and human nature.
