The idea of the philosophy group is to enjoy thinking and reflecting together on difficult issues, using the work of major philosophers. We will often generate more questions than answers, but that is half the fun! So far we have either used a podcast or a short pre-prepared written piece to introduce a philosopher, their life and times, and their contribution to a key theme we wish to explore. There then follows a wide-ranging discussion about the issues raised. For example, on the nature of justice and morality.
No previous knowledge of philosophy is required, we will learn about the lives and ideas of some philosophers as we go along. The group is very supportive and newcomers are welcome to give it a try. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month, Burgage Close Community Hall, 10.15 – 12 midday. Contact Stephen Rogers: 01636 819965, or e-mail: email@example.com
