Returning philosophy to the real question of, how we live our lives

Hay-on-Wye lies on the Welsh side of the Welsh/English Border in the County of POWYS, Wales and from tomorrow, thousands of Londoners will be among those decamping to Hay-on-Wye for How the Light Gets In, the world’s largest philosophy festival. Run by the Angel-based Institute of Art and Ideas, it has expanded dramatically since its 2009 launch, with 35,000 visitors last year."I think we’ve helped bring a cultural shift," says founder Hilary Lawson, "philosophy is more accessible to everyone now."
