KANT'S CAVE: Philosophy and the Art of Memory (Dr Mark Fielding)

On the first Wednesday of every month the PFA meets at "Kant’s Cave" for a lecture, debate and social evening, normally in the upstairs bar of the Exmouth Arms at 1 Starcross Street, London NW1 2HR. The Exmouth Arms is in a quiet residential street about five minutes walk from Warren Street, Euston and Euston Square stations.

The idea of using the function room of a pub for our philosophy meetings is that we would like to combine serious philosophical activity with an informal exchange of ideas and views. We therefore invite everybody to stay on after the lectures for more talk and debate. All lectures start at 7.30 pm; the bar is open from 7.00. There is a £2 door charge for non-PFA members.

    Thanks for a really interesting lecture! One comment though is that I would have found it useful to have a break between the lecture and the questions. At least for me, it would have made me last a bit longer :) nonetheless, great event and I look forward to the next!

      Hello Josefin,

      Thanks very much for your comment. Breaks are a tricky one. Having a break gives the brain cells a chance to relax and be revived. On the other hand, having a five minute break means that it is at least ten minutes before everyone is back, especially given the fact that the room is usually rather full. Then you get either a shortened discussion, or an event that goes on until so late that people have to leave early so as to get home at a comfortable time.

      We have had breaks in the past, in the middle of three-hour afternoon events. My feeling is that on balance, we should not have them in 90-minute events, but I would welcome comments from others.

      Richard (one of the organisers)
