 Could focussing on ourselves rather than others be a route to happiness and success? Or is an obsession with ourselves damaging to social cohesion and a likely route to personal misery? 

Could focussing on ourselves rather than others be a route to happiness and success? Or is an obsession with ourselves damaging to social cohesion and a likely route to personal misery? 

The Self and the Selfie is the second in a new series of IAI Events, tackling narcissism and creativity in Generation Selfie. With more data stored from one day's selfies than all the world's books(!), many have dismissed Generation Selfie as superficial and vain. Yet creative genius has often been linked to narcissism. Join this unique evening of #NarcissismDebate, discussion and music. The panel will include Academic philosopher Simon Blackburn, feminist sex blogger Doll Cat Pvssy, Associate Editor of Cosmopolitan UK Amy Grier and Guardian columnist Tim Dowling
