Taunton Talks

The Taunton talks are intended to appeal to students who wish to engage in serious thinking beyond the confines of the tutorial and are motivated by the pursuit of truth.

They touch on pressing topics of the day as well as on perennial questions about the world and how to lead the good life, providing a forum for robust discussion in an informal setting where these topics can be dealt with honestly and deeply. The talks are aimed at bringing together undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Oxford to foster an atmosphere of open discussion and interdisciplinary learning.

The timetable is as follows:
12:00 – Talk starts
12:45 – Discussion
13:30 – Optional buffet lunch

The buffet lunch costs £5, and the number of lunch guests is restricted to 12; please contact Alex Norris at mailto:alexander.norris@sjc.ox.ac.uk to be added to the mailing list and to book a place at lunch. The address is Grandpont House, Abingdon Road, Oxford OX1 4LD.

We look forward to seeing you there!
