Fed up of small talk? This picnic does away with the pointless pleasantries and delves straight into the deep stuff. Interested? Pack your sarnies and make a beeline for the bandstand in Regent’s Park, where the convo will centre on notions of the self in Indian and Western philosophy. Expect to hear such pressing questions such as ‘Is the self a stable, continuous substance? What makes a self a self? Is there even any such thing?’ Don’t worry if you don’t have a degree in PPE, all deep thinkers are welcome.
