‘Why is it so hard to keep a sense of self and identity in this modern world?’
In the age of Instagram, it’s often hard to get away from the subject of the self. Yet for most of us, it is our utmost fixation. What defines us, what is our place in the world, and what do we hope to take for ourselves from this often confusing thing that we call existence?
The opening session of Pages takes a journey through some of our favourite texts towards self-definition and self-discovery. Bring your brain and your personal experience of reality, and settle into a stimulating (and hopefully enlightening) discussion with like-minded individuals. All texts and references welcome.
