LAE welcomes Professor A.C. Grayling

We were absolutely thrilled to welcome world-renowned philosopher and writer A.C. Grayling back to LAE on Wednesday 2nd May as part of the LAE Lecture Series.
 

Professor Grayling gave a fascinating talk to Year 12s on the topic of Democracy, Sovereignty and Brexit.
 

The Professor traced the debates about democracy and sovereignty back from Plato’s scepticism through to the present, via the Levellers and John Stuart Mill before discussing the threats facing democracy today and Brexit.
 

Our students had some great questions, and Professor Grayling spent some time after the Q & A chatting with students individually about the issues discussed and studying philosophy.
 

LAE is grateful to Professor Grayling for giving up his time to support our students with a fascinating and thought-provoking talk.
