Small is beautiful

This month we will be looking at how Philosophical ideas can help us deal with dilemmas like environmental issues and third world issues. In particular we will be examining the work of Schumacher  the economist and philosopher through his 1970`s ground breaking book “Small is Beautiful”. This is a topic that should interest us all and is very current in most peoples thoughts about the present state of our planet. You would be very welcome to come along and enjoy our discussion, no philosophical background is needed just an interest in how we might shape our future. Just come and listen and join in if you wish or not.

We meet on Wednesday 20th September   2.30pm Kensington House

Philosophy in May

This month we will look in a little more depth into Simone Weill, the 20th century French philosopher.  We also hope to start a relook at Plato, in particular his REPUBLIC and how this may or may not relate 
to present day society.
Remember philosophy is just what you  do when you sit and think about things. No expertise needed. All welcome.

Our philosophy group meets on the third Wednesday of each month. We are a very friendly group, with no experts, just people who are interested in finding out what the meaning of life is all about and what great thinkers have had to say about it.  Our discussions have ranged from  Plato to the philosophy of walking and lots in between. If you feel you would like to explore Philosophy  come along and you will receive a warm welcome and no prior experience of Philosophy is needed.

Our next meeting is on Wednesday 21 st  November at Kensington House from 2.30  to 4.30 where we will discuss some of the philosophy  of Education. We will also  examine some different meanings of intelligence.
