Bangor academic to speak at world's largest philosophy and music festival

David Healy of Bangor University’s College of Health and Behavioural Sciences will be speaking at HowTheLightGetsIn, the world’s largest philosophy and music festival, this May.

How the Light Gets in brings together world-leading scientists, musicians, philosophers and politicians in a wide-ranging programme which examines the elements of reality that might soon turn out to be illusions.

David Healy will be joining Dianne Abbott and Natalie Bennett to ask whether more social justice could make us healthier in ‘Are Hospitals bad For Us?’ on Sunday 24th May before giving a talk on the danger posed by the drug industry ‘Are clinical trials a danger to us all?’ on Monday 25th May.

He also joins Dinesh Bhugra and Havi Carel to put medicine on trial in ‘Positive Thinking and The Name Game’
