Hat Sessions

HowTheLightGetsIn London 2021 Hat sessions breathe life into philosophy.

Experience philosophy through the body in the Philosophy and the Senses series. Uncover the meaning in perfumes, delicate sweets and intoxicating drinks.  With wine-tasting workshops from Barry C. Smith, a HowTheLightGetsIn favourite, explore the sensual ways in which we experience the world.

Ideas affect our lives in unexpected, tangible ways. In Arc of Life and In Conversation events, the Hat becomes the world's leading thinkers tell the stories of their lives and their dreams for the future. From reflective politicians to dedicated artists and ambitious campaigners join to relive the effects of philosophy on these unusual lives.

Finally, our leading thinkers have been there, done that, and are here to teach you how at our unique How To... workshops, on everything from how to talk about sex to how to land a rover on Mars.
