Does God exist ? Is there such a thing as right and wrong ? Should euthanasia be allowed ? Is what we call reality simply an illusion ? Is there a difference between the brain and 'mind' ? Is a pile of bricks really art ?
These are some of the questions that have exercised philosophers down the ages and are now the subject of scrutiny by our U3A group. We have been meeting on a monthly basis for three years having lively discussions on these and other challenging topics. Having a wide range of views our debate can become heated but we always remember we are there to have fun while, hopefully, getting an insight into other's points of view and those of the major philosophers.
As we meet in each other's homes space is restricted and the Group is currently full but if there were sufficient interest it may be possible to start a second group.
