PHILOSOPHY

DESCRIPTION: The Hitchhikers Guide to Philosophy. We will get on the galactic highway to answer questions such as:

- What's the Big Idea?
- What are the ideas that have shaped our world, our points of view?
- What is happiness, the good life?
- What did the ancient Greeks ever do for us?
- What is Postmodernism?
- Do feelings always win over rationality?
- Why does buttered toast always land the wrong way up?

Bring your curiosity, open mindedness, and humour to this monthly meet-up.
We aim to meet up monthly where one person hosts and suggests background material to lead an informal chat with a chance for everyone to have a say. You don't have to be an expert just curious. Think of this group as "In Our Time" (BBC Radio 4) for amateurs.
