On Wednesday 23 November at 4pm, in the Chapel of Pusey House as part of their 'Recollection Series', Dr Ralph Weir of the University of Lincoln will ask what a culturally and scientifically informed person should think about the idea of the soul. He will discuss a number of common misconceptions and reflect on why the idea of the soul evokes such intense hostility in today's intellectual climate. He will conclude by explaining why he thinks the idea of the soul is here to stay. 

Dr Ralph Weir is Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Lincoln, and an Associate Member of the Faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Oxford.
