Prof grayling One of the UK's foremost philosophers, Professor A C Grayling, joins us on Wednesday 24 January for our latest BCU City Talks event.

A.C. Grayling is Professor of Philosophy and Master of the New College of the Humanities, London. He has written and edited many books, both scholarly and for a general readership, and has been a regular contributor to The Times and New Statesman. He is a frequent contributor to television programmes, including Newsnight and CNN news.

Professor Grayling believes that philosophy should take an active and useful role in society. In his new book, Democracy and its Crisis, Professor Grayling argues that the Brexit result was the consequence of giving too much power to the "wrong sort of people" and that the rush to Brexit could have been halted.
