Philosophy Group - Information and Update
The Philosophy Group meets on the second Thursday morning of each month at Howard's Court Farm on The A173 Stokesley Road.
This gives us the opportunity to meet and chat with others in a warm, friendly and welcoming venue.
There will also be Zoom meetings taking place occasionally and some occasional small group meetings in houses.
If you are interested in joining the Group or would like further information, please contact me by phone 01642596822 or by email to Pat Grainger
The Group members have been keeping in contact over the last year via Zoom sessions and Group email debates and discussions, which have focussed on Racism, Liberal Democracies, Autocracies, Animal Rights, Alien visitors to Earth, Free Speech, Religion...
We are continuing to study the key ideas and arguments of the early Greek Philosophers which lay the foundations for much of our modern thinking.
Here are some basic but very useful and enjoyable reading recommendations:
1 ) All That Matters, Philosophy by Julian Baggini
2 ) The Story of Philosophy by James Garvey and Jeremy Stangroom
3 ) The Great Philosophers by Stephen Law
Everyone is welcome to join the Group. You don't need to be an expert or have extensive knowledge of the subject area. However, engaging in Philosophy does require an open, questioning mind and a willingness to challenge your long held beliefs.
