In 2016, the King’s Department of Philosophy piloted an 8-week philosophy course for prisoners at HMP Belmarsh. With the support of Professors Bill Brewer and MM McCabe, Mike Coxhead (PhD candidate and Visiting Research Fellow in the Department), Andy West (senior specialist at The Philosophy Foundation), and Andrea Fassolas (honorary therapist at the Guild of Psychotherapists) developed and delivered a course of discussion-based philosophy classes.
In 2017, King’s will offer a re-run of the original pilot course, as well as a second course specifically targeted at ESOL learners.
More details about the course content and its outcomes can be found on the King’s Philosophy research pages.
The Guardian’s Ian Sample asks:”Is emergent quantum mechanics grounded in classical physics?”
He is joined by Gerard t’Hooft, Nobel prize winner, and emeritus professor of theoretical physics at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, our own Eleanor Knox, who provides the historical context for the discussion and, finally, Carlo Rovelli from Aix Marseille Université, who offers an alternative, “relational” interpretation of quantum mechanics.
