Many philosophers have also written about poetry. Some philosophers have also been poets. Next week at Cardiff Philosophy Cafe, we’re lucky to have joining us Prof. Christopher Norris (Philosophy, Cardiff University) to give us some examples of how the two can be melded. In this year’s Christmas Cafe, Prof. Norris offers us a series of villanelles which take off from the ideas of various theorists and philosophers (Descartes, Leibniz, Heidegger, Lacan, Althusser, Derrida, Deleuze, Badiou, Agamben) and then move out to address larger matters of life and love.

As usual, we’re in the Cafe bar at The Gate from 8.00 pm, on Tuesday 15 December. Hope to see you there!
