Our monthly get-together (Manchester Armchair Philosophers)

The regular monthly get-together of the Manchester Armchair Philosophers group.

The theme for this month, suggested by Mary, will be Holidays: luxury or necessity?

If you have any questions/comments then you can leave them below,  or email me on ManchesterArmchairPhilosophers AT gmail DOT com

Any topics/themes you would like us to discuss?  All suggestions are put in a hat and chosen more or less at random (I try to keep a good mix of topics so two similar topics won't be in consecutive months).


When you arrive for the meet-up, please get yourself a drink from the downstairs bar and then bring it upstairs to the function room.

We have been kindly allowed to use the function room for free on the understanding we'll buy some drinks ;-)

If you aren't sure where we are,  phone me on[masked] and I will help you to find your way.

See you there,



PS - We ask those that can afford it to make a voluntary contribution (suggested £2) to cover the fees that meet-up charge for the use of this website.  Our group has agreed that any excess monies received will be donated to Amnesty International (AI).  AI are a human rights charity who, amongst other things, support those who live in countries which restrict the freedom of speech that we, thankfully, can take for granted at these meet-ups.

    Good point, leading to the very important discussion about how holidays should be structured : as getaways or opportunities to learn. Personally, if I wanted to laze with beer, a book and headphones my back garden will leave the smallest carbon paw-prints .

    Will 'Holidays: luxury or necessity?' be enough to philosophically chew on for a couple of hours?

    I'm looking to form a symposium of philosophers for the transmission of a new form of thought and method of disemmination. Would like to meet other philosophers who are interested in this. See you there!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
