    How much control do we have over anything anyway? Join us at Salon London on Thurs 24th May - to get some practical information on how to take control…

    Of ourselves?

    What is a life well lived - and what sway do we have over getting one? Tune out all the 'LIVE THIS WAY' noise and tune in to a classically philosophical point of view as Prof Edith Hall presents 'Aristotle's Way' - described by Stephen Fry as 'wonderful'.

    Of our borders?

    Turns out the geography of nations matters very much more than arbitrary boundaries, borders or walls - as Tim Marshall, the No 1 Sunday Times best-selling author of 'Prisoners of Geography', will explain.

    Of the planet?

    Are we thinking much too small and much too conservatively? When what we can actually do to protect our global home is so much bolder than giving up straws. Find out more with LSE anthropologist and author of 'The Divide' Jason Hickel.

    The Hospital Club, Covent Garden. Doors open at 7pm, first speaker on at 7:30pm.

    We'd love you to join us for the last Salon before we break for summer - please get your tickets here.

    Want more Salon London during summer of 2018? Join us for the 5th year of our acclaimed Also Festival 29th June - 1st July.
