The Art of Thinking about the Personal and the Political. - Secular Hall - Leicester

In this session, we will discuss the often repeated claim that “The Personal is Political.” This claim is normally taken to mean that one can’t do things in one’s personal life that conflicts with one’s politics. But it can also be taken to mean that there should never be a public or private space in which we are free from numerous, constant, and overwhelming political obligations. This is why some have felt that, in order to have a free society, there needs to be a distinction between the personal and the political. £3.00 on the door
