Speakers: Barry C. Smith, Simon May, Julian Baggini, Henrietta Moore. Chair: Martin Jacques

In its focus on language and structure 20th century philosophy all but eradicated the need for the human subject. Now there are signs that the self is on its way back.  But are we any closer to understanding the self, and what makes each one of us who we are?

Martin Jacques uncovers who philosopher / writer / broadcasters, Simon May, Barry C Smith, and Julian Baggini and cultural theorist Henrietta Moore think they really are.

This event is part of How the Light Gets In, the philosophy and music festival at Hay on Wye. It took place on 28 May 2011, 10:30am, Venue: International Tent.
