"The wisdom of love is perhaps the first meaning of the word 'philosophy'"
- Luce Irigaray, *The Way of Love*

Luce Irigaray is one of the world's most important Continental philosophers
working and writing today. This conference is devoted to thinking love:
love of life and the natural world and the cultivation of love of the
other, between generations and across differences. The conference will
include formal paper sessions, presentations by Luce Irigaray, and a
programme of activities that includes a visit to the University of
Bristol's Botanical Garden, a film screening, and more. It is supported by
the University of Bristol, the University of Sussex, and the department of
Humanities at the University of Trieste, Italy.
