BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival

Timothy Secret (New Generation Thinker): Cat's Eyes

The Barbour Room

Due to high demand we will only honour 4 tickets per customer. All tickets will be held at Ticket Office for collection.

Our world changes when we’re on display. When caught in another person’s gaze, some of us strut like a peacock whilst others squirm like a fly.

But how do we react when an animal, rather than a human, looks at us? Is there a difference, and what does this say about our relationship with animals?

University of Essex Philosopher Timothy Secret explores the philosophical consequences of the animal gaze.

The New Generation Thinkers are the winners of a talent scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find the brightest academic minds in the arts and humanities with the potential to turn their ideas into broadcasts.

This event will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

If advance tickets for your chosen event are currently sold out, don’t forget that there will be a standby queue on the day.
