Ledbury & District

Philosophy

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month, from 2pm - 4pm. Our current venue is Leadon Bank Meeting Room.

Literally, Philosophy means “love of wisdom”. For some, philosophy’s goal is a systematic world view and they have indeed provided systematic theories of history, justice, the State and knowledge : we will be discussing all of these areas and more in the coming months.

The meetings proceed with presentations by the more experienced members of the group. This is followed by a discussion focusing on the philosophical issues associated with the preceding presentation.

Our forthcoming 2019 programme is:
February: ......... A. J. Ayer
March: ............. Wittgenstein re-visited
April: ............... British Philosophy : J. Austin and Ordinary Language (TBC)
May: ................ British Philosophy : Michael Dummett, P. F. Strawson (TBC)
June: ............... The Philosophy of Time (TBC)
July: ................ Virtue Ethics

February and March presentations are finalised, but the remaining months maybe subject to change and adjustment as we proceed.

There is limited space for new members
