Group leader: Mike Silvester - Contact Mike

This group is not currently accepting new members. If you would like to join this or a similar group, please register your interest. That will allow us to notify you if a place becomes available. If enough people register an interest we will try to create a new group.


We meet from 10.00 - 12.00 on the third Wednesday of the month.

We discuss a topic previously chosen by the group, each member contributes as much as s/he wants,

Many members use the internet to discover information relevant to the topic, and this often enriches the discussion. We have a coffee break half way through which enables general conversation. Topics covered in the past, include:

  • Co-operativism
  • Fairness
  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Assisted Suicide
  • Women and Religion

as well as the thought of individual philosophers ranging from Confucious to Marx.

No previous knowledge of philosophy is assumed, but an open mind is a big advantage.
