Group Updates cont’d

Philosophy

A new academic year and the Tuesday Group continued with the ancient Greeks. We have now moved on to Aristotle, and so far are looking at his differences with Plato, in particular his view of the reality of objects compared with Plato’s view of ‘Forms’. We shall continue with this at the next meeting and then in November John Fairburn will lead an ethical discussion on ‘prison sentencing / early release’. December will be a ‘philosophical’ pub lunch.

The Friday Group started the year with a look at Eastern Philosophy. In September discussing Oriental Philosophy (which is mainly Confucius). The October meeting will be led by Derek Evans on Buddhism, with a similar ethical discussion to the Tuesday Group in November, and Pub lunch in December. In 2010 the theme will be ‘the philosophy of language.

Both groups are very friendly and have mainly discussion, not lecture, meetings. There is still some room in the Tuesday group for new members. If you are interested contact me .
