Convenor: Parvez ShaheenVacancies
Date: 3rd Thursday of each monthNo Waiting List
Time: 10am to 12noon
Venue: Quaker Meeting Room (downstairs )
Admission: £ 2 per session (to include room hire, handouts when required, coffee/tea and biscuits)

A group that would meet monthly to discuss the big ideas and dilemmas that have concerned and interested people for thousands of years. We will consider how the issues affect our lives today and look at the writings of philosophers and other thinkers through the ages .
REQUIREMENTS: Interest in philosophy and ideas; willingness to do some reading each month.
MEETING: 3rd Thursday of each month at 10 am at the Quaker Meeting Room, Beccles. Please note that the next meeting will be on Thursday the 15th of August.

In June, Michael Iliffe gave Part 1 of his presentation on Karl Popper. This mainly covered his ideas on Scientific methodology and his ideas on Falsification. Michael will cover Popper's political ideas in more detail in the first part of the October session which will be followed by Desmond Whittle's presentation on Karl Marx.

In July, there will be the "Summer Epicurean" !

Please bring any additions to our Library and try to circulate the books by returning any that you have borrowed and have finished with for the time being.

I look forward to seeing you all for our August session and hopefully some newcomers as well. If anyone is thinking of joining this group, do not worry if you have no knowledge of Philosophy at this stage. It will come incrementally . Since "History of Ideas" is also covered, there is enough here to interest many people. The important thing is that you will gradually begin to look at issues more thoughtfully, informed by the ideas of great thinkers of the past and present. Come and sample a session and have a chat with members of the group.

All for now.
