‘Idols of Nature: Causality of Fate, Baconian Philosophy and Shakespearean Tragedy’ with Timo Uotinen, Nov 2

Idols of nature bannerOn Thursday, November 2, the KiSSiT Work-in-Progress seminar features Timo Uotinen (Royal Holloway) giving a talk entitled ‘Idols of Nature: Causality of Fate, Baconian Philosophy and Shakespearean Tragedy’, where he links epistemology with ethics in discussing how the (self)destructive activity of Shakespeare’s tragic characters is enabled by the cognitive tendencies as described by Francis Bacon in his theory of the idols of the mind.

The seminar convenes at its usual place in the Gallery of the Rose Theatre, Kingston starting at 6 pm. This talk is free and open to everyone and anyone interested.

Timo Uotinen is a PhD candidate at Royal Holloway, University of London working on the philosophy of Francis Bacon in relation to Shakespearean tragedy. He has an MA in English from the University of Tampere and an MA in Modern European Philosophy from CRMEP, situated then at Middlesex, now at Kingston University. He is also webmaster and a Fellow of the Kingston Shakespeare project and organises KiSS(iT) events.
