Philosophy is a Love of Wisdom

We are a fairly new group exploring a huge topic. So far we have used some online lectures by Michael Sandel and Marianne Talbot, and more recently we have been looking at the teaching of individual philosophers of the past – such as Plato, Aristotle, Marx, Hume, Voltaire, Rousseau and Kant.

We are currently using some episodes from a study course, dealing with such weighty questions as “What is truth?” and “What is knowledge?”. After listening to an excerpt we then engage in discussion of the issues presented : there is always plenty to say!

We meet on the third Friday of each month at 2.15pm in Drayton. We are a small group at present and would welcome a few more members. If you would like to know more then please contact me.
