This Meetup Group began as "On Philosophy Lecture Series" to support the Newcastle Philosophy Society Annual Lecture Series given by Anthony Morgan in 2014. Since then it has broadened to reflect a wider selection of the Society's meetings and events, as reflected in its current title.<br><br>

The Newcastle Philosophy Society practices free philosophical conversation, welcoming everyone with an interest in philosophy – especially novices – and all philosophical approaches. The Newcastle Philosophy Society aims to release philosophical conversation back into the public arena – pubs, cafes, community halls and the like – to further free philosophy from the dusty academic closet.

Our events are designed for engagement and interaction, sharing and dialogue, in a spirit of mature enquiry rather than debate. For one thing that philosophy tells us is that right answers are hard to find. Events are usually free, though a very small number may ask for a small fee to cover room hire costs (and information about such fees will be highlighted prior to the event). There is no need to be a member to attend – simply turn up at the time and place given on the calendar on the main page.<br>

Membership of the Society is free, and is not necessary to attend events. Members receive a weekly email, as well as being granted voting rights at the Annual General Meeting. Those wishing to be a member should email the Assistant Secretary at philosecretary@gmail.com. The Society has several hundred members (2016).

Running the Society is a board of trustees and appointed officers who meet on a monthly basis (everyone is welcome to attend these meetings). All trustees and officers are members who volunteer to perform the administrative tasks required to ensure the smooth running of the Society.

The NPS is a registered charity and a branch of the Royal Institute of Philosophy.<br><br>

More details about the society including a full calendar of upcoming events can be found at http://newphilsoc.org.uk/
