We are a lively and friendly group from a multitude of backgrounds who come together to use philosophical approaches to learn more about a variety of topics of interest and to attempt to apply them to life and questions of philosophy in general.
In Applied Philosophy (previously called Everyday Philosophy) we think about issues that affect the way we live in society. We use philosophical type concepts in that we examine the thinking process but we are not as 'academic' as the other Philosophy group, but we try to relate the concepts to our own lives and what may be going on, or has gone on, in the world. The discussions are lively and friendly and members usually receive handouts or links to websites via email for perusal beforehand and any preparation they may wish to do.
