A.C. Grayling

In collaboration with the Science Museum, the Royal Society presents a very special free virtual event in which the acclaimed philosopher, historian and author Professor A.C. Grayling joins science historian Dr Patricia Fara in conversation.

The Age of Genius is a vivid reconstruction of the seventeenth century in which figures that span science, art and philosophy — from Newton, Locke and Hobbes to Shakespeare, Rembrandt and Descartes — took centre stage in sparking a paradigm shift that would define Western thought for centuries to come.

Together, Professor Grayling and Dr Fara will discuss The Age of Genius in detail, bringing to life a critical era in human thought.
