Friendships are an important type of relationship. Despite this, it is common to position ‘friendships’ and ‘relationships’ as mutually exclusive categories.

Especially in the digital domain, the questions are abundant: Has the Web changed our views on knowledge and free speech? Have mobile phones changed the flux of friendships? Have social media changed our sense of social status?

Do you think our identity and worldview differ from two decades ago? And if so, for better, or ...

Join us for an evening with Tariq Eden - PhD candidate in the philosophy of science, researching mental imagery and hallucinations.

We'll be exploring _how_ we each think by discussing our different uses of mental imagery.

Mental imagery is a concept for those sensations experienced ‘in the mind’ (sight, sound, texture, taste, etc.,) in the absence of the relevant perceptual stimuli that they resemble (visual, auditory, tactile, gustatory, etc.,).

The role of imagery in individual thinking strategies vary: from thinking that involves imagery so vivid and realistic that they are experienced ‘as if perceived’; to thinking that doesn’t involve ...

Democracy is under threat. In the past months we have seen a recrudescence of national and conservative claims submerging the political discourse and media. In a fragile political climate, democratic institutions are increasingly weakening – more than ever, we need to take action to regain agency on ...

Democracy is under threat. In the past months we have seen a recrudescence of national and conservative claims submerging the political discourse and media.
