NB Please ignore the notice that this series only runs until October (and please note that the November date is 27 November, not 26 November). It will go on after that, but when I changed the text to give better directions, the Meetup site split the series in two.
At each seminar, we discuss a short philosophical text, or tackle a philosophical question. This month's main text is Seneca's On the Shortness of Life, although we will also look at On Anger. Anja will bring some handouts with relevant extracts from On Anger. On the Shortness of Life is available here:
We want to keep these events reasonably small, so that we can keep the discussion focused, and so that everyone can participate. Please book your place by using the RSVP button. If you book and then find that you cannot make it, please cancel your booking, so that someone else can take your place.
The venue is the main ground floor foyer of the National Theatre on the South Bank. We will try to be as near to the downstream end as we can (the end furthest from Waterloo Bridge). If you are in doubt, come into the foyer, find the Lyttleton cloakroom, stand just in front of it, facing the cloakroom counter, and look in the alcove of half a dozen tables to your left. We will try to be there, but if it is occupied, we will have to move up towards the area in front of the Long Bar.
We will normally start at 7.45 pm, but when the main theatre's play starts at 8, we will start at 8.15, so that the foyer is clear for us. Please check each event, to confirm the time.
This seminar will be conducted by Anja Steinbauer.
