We are a very informal and friendly group of between six to ten people attempting to philosophise on topics relevant to the present day.  The group meets for two hours on the second Monday morning of each month to discuss a topic chosen in turn by individual members.  It’s not all high-brow stuff.  In 2020/21 we discussed issues such as democracy, punishment, privacy and surveillance, moral dilemmas (including what we should tell our children about Father Christmas!) and living a good life, as well as a two or three individual philosophers.

We ran our meetings via Zoom during the pandemic, but as of June 2021 we are looking forward to returning to our usual ‘round table’ meetings in each other’s homes. We would very much welcome new members…

If you wish to join us, or just want to learn more about our meetings, please contact the coordinator or telephone 01676 532497.
