There is little that we can be certain about, but we can be confident that a time will come when our current beliefs and assumptions are seen as mistaken, our heroes - like the imperial adventurers of the past - are regarded as villains, and our morality is viewed as bigoted prejudice.
So the IAI seeks to challenge the notion that our present accepted wisdom is the truth. It aims to uncover the flaws and limitations in our current thinking in search of alternative and better ways to hold the world.
The IAI was founded in 2008 with the aim of rescuing philosophy from technical debates about the meaning of words and returning it to big ideas and putting them at the centre of culture. Not in aid of a more refined cultural life, but as an urgent call to rethink where we are.
We’re looking for a team of dedicated stewards to help us run the world’s largest philosophy and music festival - HowTheLightGetsIn. If you would like the opportunity to hear some of the world’s leading thinkers, plus access to incredible live music, then we want to hear from you.
In return for their shifts, stewards get a festival pass which gets them access to all the festival's incredible debates and events. Although we can't provide food for staff, all stewards get a jammy discount at the festival eateries along with a free camping pace on the festival campsite.
On shifts, stewards help keep the festival tick - check tickets, man the doors of events and act as the first contact point for all our visitors. Shifts are full on and fast paced, but also very rewarding and the friends you make on the stewarding team are ones that last! Every steward can request a professional reference to document this valuable and varied experience for future employers.
Start time: 10:00 AM
