A group of philosophers gathers to vivisect questions and dilemmas of ultimate importance. How? What? Why? It’s an honor to be included amongst a group of truly illustrious thinkers and theorists. Each philosopher has been assigned a booth where they can present their most scintillating ideas. Their presentations may be the most defining moment of their careers.
The conference is well underway when suddenly a cry echoes in the chamber: Siger of Brabant has been mortally stabbed in the back. His fellow philosophers, moved by his tragic demise, temporarily set aside their plethora of differences and volunteer their services to help locate the killer. Who murdered Siger of Brabant, and – more importantly – why?
