Literary Oxford: Johann Hari

February 2, 2019. Philosophy in the Bookshop - Nigel Warburton and Johann Hari


Philosophy in the Bookshop is one of the regular events at Blackwell's bookshop (Oxford).

This time we listened to philosopher Nigel Warburton talking with writer and journalist Johann Hari. The author told us about his book exploring the mental health issues, 'Lost Connections'.

The event attracted many more people than there were seats, even people who were in the bookshop looking for books were stopping to listen!

My favourite quote of the event:

'It's not the work that makes us depressed - it's being controlled at work'.

So simple and yet so true.
