Come and discuss philosophy in a small, informal group. Each month we consider a different topic, after a short introduction by one of the group.
We are a genuine discussion group - we do not have a philosophy of our own to promote. Rather, we are keen to hear all opinions. Most members have no philosophical training - all you need to join is an enthusiasm for thinking and discussion.
Levinas and the face of the other
Tuesday 19th September 2017 7:30pm - 9:30pm
1 Chestnut Grove, Arnold, Nottingham NG5 8BD
A Reading Group meets in the Nottingham area approximately every six weeks to discuss a philosophy book we have previously chosen to read. If you are interested in joining this group, please contact Jim Stuart at firstname.lastname@example.org
Contact Jim Stuart for details of the next meeting.
We meet once a month at a member's house. The subject is briefly introduced by one of the group and then the floor is open for discussion. Meetings last for two hours and some of us then adjourn to a nearby pub. There are usually around fifteen people present - you are encouraged to participate but if you prefer just to listen, that's fine too.
It doesn't cost anything - just come along. Donations to cover the cost of refreshments are invited.
We are keen to hear suggestions for new issues to discuss, particularly if you wish to introduce the topic.
