Great Thinkers and Our Thinking

This seminar addressed a selection of ‘great thinkers’ who have informed the work developed by some academics in the Faculty of Social Sciences at The Open University. The discussion aimed to show how the work of the selected thinkers provided researchers with material to think with, to think against and sometimes to think beyond.
