On Stupidity

 Registration is closed for this event
A one day conference

This event is a collaboration between the Institute of Psychoanalysis and the Centre for Philosophy and the Visual Arts at King’s College London.

Looking at our present situation across the world, one word often comes to mind: ‘stupidity’. But what exactly is stupidity? How does it differ from foolishness or naivity? Can you be stupid and smart? Is stupidity static? How has it been understood throughout history, and does it say something about our current predicaments?

Join us for an interdisciplinary conversation drawing on art, philosophy and psychoanalysis.
Welcome drinks and registration from 6.45pm

Speakers: Paul Clinton, Sacha Golob, William Badenhorst and Alla Rubitel
