The group meets monthly, usually on the afternoon of the first Thursday.
Meetings involve presentations by group members and open-forum discussions, supported by written material, broadcasts and videos as appropriate. The main thrust of the group’s activity has been an exploration of the historical development of ideas within the western tradition. In addition, the group has investigated a range of topics and concepts relevant to contemporary philosophical enquiry. For 2019, the group plans to explore some practical applications of ethical and political theory to current social issues.
The group has a stable core membership and currently has a limited number of vacancies.
