Musicians express their feelings through songs in a way rarely seen in normal conversation. Can reflecting on this inspire us to become more honest with each other? In this talk we will look into what some of the great philosophers thought it was that makes music such a powerful vehicle for truth. With this as our outset, you are invited to share why your favourite song matters to you.
Hear a few honest songs played live, to show that there is beauty in being fragile and that we do not have to be ashamed of being who we are in order to find acceptance.
With Henrik Schoeneberg, philosopher, songwriter and host of open-mic events.
This event is part of Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
