Rae Langton, Simon Blackburn, Huw Price and Angela Breitenbach will be speaking this May at HowTheLightGetsIn, the world’s largest philosophy and music festival. Bringing together world-leading scientists, musicians, philosophers and politicians including Lawrence Krauss, Natalie Bennett, Paul Krugman, Fiona Shaw, Mike Skinner, Polly Toynbee, Lianne La Havas, Tariq Ali, Martin Creed, and John Searle for debates, talks and wild parties, this year’s programme examines the elements of reality that might soon turn out to be illusions.

The Cambridge philosophers will consider whether lying is ever permissible, discuss whether we have “selves”, argue whether there are objective values, discover if time and space exist beyond our perception and much more. For more info head to www.howthelightgetsin.org
