The next instalment of St Mary’s University, Twickenham’s Royal Institute of Philosophy (RIP) Lecture Series will be held on Thursday 23rd April. The lecture entitled Emotional Errors will be presented by Prof Michael Brady, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. Emotions are very often responsible for errors in belief and behaviour, according to Prof Brady. This talk will look at why different emotions lead us astray and explain how emotional errors result from the operation of our vitally important emotional systems. Moreover, Prof Brady will explain how it is often emotions themselves that are responsible for correcting such errors and can be the means by which we get back on track. Prof Brady was Director of the British Philosophical Association, having previously served as Secretary of the Scots Philosophical Association. His research centres on the philosophy of emotion, and its links with moral philosophy and epistemology. His 2013 book Emotional Insight was published by Oxford University Press.

The lecture is free and open to the public without registration. It will take place in the Senior Common Room of St Mary’s Strawberry Hill Campus from 5.15pm followed by a Q&A session and a wine reception. For further information please contact Dr Yasemin J Erden at yj.erden@stmarys.ac.uk.
