Event description
A special event with Erling Kagge as he introduces his new book 'Philosophy for Polar Explorers'

About this Event

Blackwell's is thrilled to be welcoming Erling Kagge to discuss his new book 'Philosophy for Polar Explorers'.

Synopsis

Erling Kagge was the first man in history to reach all of the Earth's poles by foot - the North, the South, and the summit of Everest. In 'Philosophy for Polar Explorers' he brings together the wisdom and expertise he has gained from the expeditions that have taken him to the limits of the earth, and of human endurance.

This is the essential guide to the art of exploration. In sixteen meditative but practical lessons - from cultivating an optimistic outlook, to getting up at the right time, to learning to find focus and comfort in solitude - Erling Kagge reveals what survival in the most extreme conditions can teach us about how to lead a meaningful life. Wherever we may be headed.

Erling Kagge is a Norwegian explorer who was the first in history to reach the 'three poles' - North, South and the summit of Everest. He now lives in Oslo where he runs a publishing house. He is the author of multiple books, including 'Silence', which is published in 38 languages, and 'Walking'.

Tickets for this event are £5. Doors will open at 6.45pm when there will be a small bar available to purchase drinks. For more information, please contact our Customer Service Desk on 01865 333 623 or email events.oxford@blackwell.co.uk
