Debate is the beating heart of HowTheLightGetsIn. Ideas are alive and evolving. There is rarely consensus at the frontiers of knowledge.

HowTheLightGetsIn brings together the world’s leading thinkers in every field – from firebrand philosophers like Slavoj Žižek to Nobel Prize-winning physicists like Roger Penrose, game-changing economists like Marianna Mazzucato to critically acclaimed writers like Martin Amis.

Our programme is totally unique and singularly accessible. From fiery debates to intimate solo talks, and from Academy courses to Inner Circle dinners, get ready to push the boundaries of what you know.
