Dr Emily Thomas talks to Georgina Godwin about her new book, ‘The Meaning of Travel’. What compels people to travel and what impact does it have on society? ‘The Meaning of Travel’ traverses the places where philosophy and travel intersect, from the 16th century to the present day. Emily discusses the gendering of travel and philosophy and the ethics of travelling in an era of climate crisis and a pandemic.
