Group Activity:

The Ancient Greek word philosophia was probably coined by Pythagoras and literally means "love of wisdom" or "friend of wisdom".In casual speech, the term can refer to any of the most basic beliefs, concepts, and attitudes of an individual or group.

The monthly meetings of the Buxton group generally follow the pattern of having one of the members introduce a topic followed by a general discussion, the aim being understanding rather than agreement. Members are welcome to come along and just listen if they wish, there is no pressure to speak. None of the current group members are professional philosophers. The winter programme which start on the 19th October covers topics which all have relevance to the present day and include aspects of democracy, "designer" babies and the relationship between science and religion.
