Please contact Sandra West on 01579 370231 or via email by clicking on the link above on the right hand side if you are interested in joining. We meet on the last Thursday of the month from 10.00 to 12 in the Town Hall with a refreshment break halfway through.
We are a group learning as we go about philosophers and philosophy. Our discussions are wide ranging, often including current affairs, and we enjoy sharing each others views in a friendly and informal setting. The book we are using as a starting point for our sessions is "Philosophy Bites" by David Edmunds and Nigel Warburton.
