We meet in each others' homes on the 2nd Thursday of the month, from 10 to 12, and take it in turns to lead the discussion. Some members prefer not to lead, and they do most of the hosting.
Each session consists of an overview/introduction to the subject, with the leader perhaps then selecting to focus on one or two particular aspects of the philosophy to concentrate on for the remaining portion of the, say, half an hour. The discussion part of the meeting, following coffee, may flow naturally from the topic, or the leader may wish to initiate it with a couple of relevant questions. The leader may also chose to provide an email 'heads up' before the meeting, referencing suitable reading matter or internet links.
Our aim is to look at the old and the new philosophers/philosophies, in no particular order, and anyone prepared to lead may choose their subject.
