R- Philosophy

We are a discussion group looking into various philosophical issues, schools and personalities. Meeting for a couple of hours each week does not allow for a systematic consideration of so vast a subject, and our emphasis is on trying to uncover philosophical principles and presuppositions which lie (frequently un-acknowledged) within topics with which we are faced. In this regard, the examination of some of the main philosophical schools will be attempted.

Experience has amply shown that progress is best made with a collective tolerance of a wide range of views. We also hope to continue the practice of having varied presentations from group members, although this will be entirely voluntary as far as individual members are concerned.
