Back to the 80s: Dissent, Protest and Change
"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion”, declares philosopher Albert Camus. The 1980s was a period abundant with such acts of rebellion. Individual and collective protest can take many different shapes. When are expressions of dissent justified, in which form and to what degree? From as early as the classical age and most specifically in the 19th century, philosophers have reflected on dissent and protest. We will discuss their ideas to explore 1980s revolutions in thought and politics.

Rick Lewis is the founder and editor of Philosophy Now.
