Professor Rae Langton, a professor in Philosophy at Cambridge University, spoke at the Integrity 20 conference today about free speech, hate speech and the nature of truth. After delivering a keynote presentation defining hate speech and a discussion panel on the nature of free speech, Professor Langton spoke with Source News.

“The free speech of some can silence the free speech of others,” Professor Langton said.

Integrity 20 is a gathering of artists, scholars, activists, journalists, and visionaries to discuss how we can challenge perceptions of truth, disorder and optimism.
