What we do

This is a study-group for interested amateurs, or retired professionals.

Our way of working is to select topics of interest and invite a member (or members) of the group to research the subject and then present with a talk of 20 minutes or so on that subject. The members are then invited to discuss and comment on the topic. As we are all learning to a greater or lesser extent an absence of previous knowledge of a subject is certainly no bar to taking on a presentation!

We encourage contributions from all but equally recognise that some wish just to listen. All views are welcome. Philosophers never expect to end up agreeing on much!

The following books may be useful for newcomers to the subject:
