The Philosophy of the Overlooked Part 2: Hesitation

7 Sep 2006

A new series celebrating the continued relevance of phenomenology, a philosophy aimed at making explicit structures of lived experience and modes of human existence: those things that are encountered every day without thought.

Hesitation is an important part of our daily lives. Its causes can be wildly variable and its effects can range from a benign waste of time to the life threatening delay. Yet we often dismiss it as a weakness. Speakers: Nicholas Parsons, Chairman of Radio 4's Just A Minute; Gulsen Bal, visual artist and theoretician; Neil Mullarkey, founder-member of the Comedy Store Players, Britain's top improv troupe and Robin Lickley, lecturer in Linguistics at University of Edinburgh, specialising in disfluency.

Presented in association with The London Consortium
