Join the Institute of Philosophy for a panel discussion on the Virtues of the Table: an Evening Discussion on Ethical Issues raised by Food Choices.

The discussion will include: Julian Baggini is the editor and co-founder of The Philosophers’ Magazine. He is author of several books about philosophy written for a general audience, including The Virtues of the Table: How to Eat and Think, published by Granta.

Naomi Sykes is an Archaeologist from the University of Nottingham whose research focuses on human-animal-landscape interactions and how they inform on the structure, ideology and environmental impact of societies, both past and present. She is currently working with the British Deer Society, National Trust and European deer managers to raise awareness about the realities and responsibilities of sustainable venison production.

Ben Reade is currently Head of Culinary Research and Development at Nordic Food Lab. He is a cum laude graduate from the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy and currently spends much of his time travelling to research the complex interactions between good flavour, biodiversity and sustainability.
