Come along and be engrossed by this debate about the impact of science on philosophy. Stephen Hawking's proclamation that philosophy is dead was clearly hyperbole. But when it comes to understanding the fundamental nature of reality, has philosophy really got anything left to contribute? Does the rise of physics demand the end of metaphysics? Should science, not philosophy, guide our understanding of the world?

Debating these questions are Carlo Rovelli (Aix-Marseille University), Chiara Marletto (University of Oxford), Eleanor Knox (King's College London) and Alex Rosenberg (Duke University). The debate will be chaired by Ritula Shah (journalist and news reporter for the BBC).
