The British Society for Phenomenology and Nottingham Trent University workshop ‘Cormac McCarthy and Philosophy’ was convened by Patrick O’Connor (NTU). It took place at the People’s History Museum, Manchester, UK during July, 2017. It gathered together philosophers, literary scholars, and phenomenologists to discuss interdisciplinary perspectives on McCarthy’s most explicitly philosophical work to date: ‘The Kekulé Problem’.
