An event celebrating the publication of the new Selected Edition of Jan Patočka in English translation

I am delighted to report that the new Selected Edition of Jan Patočka has now been published by Bloomsbury Publishers Ltd, ISBN 9781350139091, in a beautiful and colourful jacket, featuring a painting by the artist Hervé Constant.


You are cordially invited to attend a special launch event taking place from 6.30pm on Thursday 9th June at the Czech Embassy in London.


The event will feature the co-editor of the book Erin Plunkett from The University of Hertfordshire and the originator of the translation project Graham Henderson, CEO of the Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation.


The COVID pandemic and the war in Ukraine have made the philosophical arguments of Patočka about Europe, civil society, and renewed forms of solidarity more important than ever.


Our speakers will offer their thoughts on Patočka and his contemporary relevance, followed by a discussion and Q&A.


The talks will be followed by a drinks’ reception. Copies of the new book will be available for purchase at a special reduced price.

The event will be held from 6.30pm on Thursday 9th June 2022 at The Czech Embassy, 26-30 Kensington Palace Gardens, London W8 4QY


Nearest underground Notting Hill Gate. The event itself will commence promptly at 7.00pm and will last about 60 minutes.


For more information please email, telephone 07739 937809, visit the website at, or write to The Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation c/o Gordon McAllister, Crowell & Moring LLP, Tower 42, 25 Broad Street, London EC2N 1HQ
