Error, Lies and Adventure: The Power of Lies

Forum for European Philosophy panel discussion

We have seen a gradual erosion of belief in objective truth, but in a world without truth how are we to understand lies? This second event in the series debates the nature of lies and their importance. Are lies necessarily morally wrong, and what is the relationship between lies, power and individual identity?

Isabel Hilton is a journalist and broadcaster. She is the founding editor of the website chinadialogue.

Suggested hashtag for this event for Twitter users: #LSEpoweroflies
