Event Details

Our secular society seems to have finally found its new God: Work. As technological progress makes human labour superfluous, and over-production destroys both the economy and the planet, Work remains stronger than ever as a mantra of universal submission. Federico Campagna will discuss the rise to power of the new Work religion, and will present the case for ‘radical atheism’. Drawing from a vast array of sources, spanning from the Hellenistic ultra-hedonist Cyrainc philosophers to the Jesuit author Baltasar Gracian to the anarchist philosopher Max Stirner, this lecture will explore ethical alternatives to the contemporary cult of voluntary servitude.

Federico Campagna is a writer based in London. His main fields of research are ethics and anarchism. His latest book is 'The Last Night: anti-work, atheism, adventure' (Zero Books, 2013).

11.00, £5 in advance/£2 concs. Free to Ethical Society members
Tea & Coffee will be available.

Conway Hall

Conway Hall is a landmark of London's independent intellectual, political and cultural life.

Conway Hall is owned by Conway Hall Ethical Society, which was first opened in 1929. The name was chosen in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway (1832 - 1907), anti-slavery advocate, out-spoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.

Conway Hall now hosts a wide variety of lectures, classical music, classes, performances, community and social events. It is renowned as a hub for free speech and independent thought.

Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series (now Conway Hall Sunday Concerts) - are the longest-running of their kind in Europe. The ethos of "affordable classical music for all" still remains.
