Philosophy

WE RETURNED TO IN-PERSON MEETINGS FROM THE APRIL 2022 MEETING.

We are advised that During the Coronavirus Pandemic it is important for all U3A members planning to participate in an activity or interest group to consider their own personal health circumstances before meeting in person. Click here for the pre-attendance checklist or go to the Policies page.

Each member should carry out a pre-attendance check to ensure they feel safe to join in the activity

The group meets monthly on the last Wednesday between 10.00am and 12.00noon. At each meeting we choose a topic for the next one, often introduced with a radio podcast eg ‘In Our Time’ (Melvyn Bragg, Radio 4) and a free ranging discussion follows. Topics range from ancient, through contemporary philosophers to broad subject areas such as ‘Idealism/Materialism’, ‘Philosophy of Art’ and ‘Existentialism’.

We meet in members’ homes, so our capacity is limited to 9 members. At present WE HAVE 3 VACANCIES.

The Convenor for Philosophy is Valerie Bracken, if you want to send her a message requesting more information about the group, please click on the ‘Bird’.
