PPE for PEOPLE

Politics, Philosophy, Economics: PPE for PEOPLE
THCC
Tuesdays 1000-1200 (3 sessions: 2nd Oct, 6th Nov, 4th Dec)

Convener: Roger Hurley

Maximum: 30

15th January – for reserve members to see what has transpired so far (and for existing members who would welcome a reprise or missed a session because of the unforeseen).

In its second term, this is a programme for everyone - a programme that seeks to aid our approach to meeting the challenge of modernity. The maximum number for this Group was originally 30 but has been increased to 35. Currently there are 25 members and 10 reserves who are being invited to join.

If you would like to add your name to the reserve list please make contact (see above) with convener Roger Hurley.

Most of us are interested in PPE but would not necessarily use those letters to summarise the focus of their attention.

The programme is participative as far as possible and members will have the opportunity to air their views and concerns in a supportive environment. In short, serious and, importantly, fun wherever possible. It is an opportunity for people to challenge assumptions and preconceived notions (theirs, other’s and those of the wider world) and seek insights (new learning) that throw light on our deeper, and possibly unformed, thoughts. As A.C. Grayling put it in U3A Sources (Summer 2018) there is a reward for “endeavouring to make sense of things rationally, creatively and sensibly”. T

he contrast of the slowness of human change with the speed of technological advances may be one expression of the challenge of modernity. Perhaps, then, it is our responsibility to seek to recalibrate that which is of value to society at large.

If this of interest then it is important to commit, as part of a continuum, to the three sessions.

Anyone who wants to discover more about the course than is written here should contact the convener who will welcome any enquiries.
