Talk

A Conversation with Alexander McCall Smith and Professor Lance Butler

Exploring Matters of the Human Spirit

Join The Sir Arthur Conan Doyle centre for a very special Tuesday Talk – A conversation with Alexander McCall Smith and Professor Lance Butler, who will discuss matters of the human Spirit.

The conversation will be an open-minded exploration of philosophically challenging issues such as consciousness, the human need for spiritual connection and the issues we must confront in order to tackle problems such as climate change. The materialistic lens through which we view the world has helped civilization advance exponentially. We live in an age of readily available and abundant information. For most of us in the West, our cultural, educational and material needs are easily taken care of. But are we any happier for it? Do we feel that our lives have meaning?
