A group that meets 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 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.

If anyone is thinking of joining this group, do not worry if you have no knowledge of Philosophy at this stage. I am keen on integrating people who are completely new to Philosophy and the History of Ideas. I would like to form sub groups for some sessions or part of sessions who would then come together in a plenary session. Confidence in handling ideas at a below-surface level, 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.
