Seminar: Locke on personal identity

At each seminar, we discuss a short philosophical text, or tackle a philosophical question. This month's text is John Locke, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, Book 2, Chapter 27, Of Identity and Diversity. The text 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). Unfortunately, our usual alcove near the Lyttleton cloakroom (to your left when you face the cloakroom counter) may be closed off, because the theatre is starting some building works. If it is, we will try to be in between the Lyttleton CLoakroom and the Long Bar, but that might not work out, so try looking all around the foyer. We will have notices on the table that say Philosophy for All.

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 Richard Baron.

    There were only six of us tonight. I hope that others did not have difficulty finding us. We were between the Lyttleton Cloakroom and the Long Bar, as predicted (in fact, very near the cloakroom), with notices on the table. If this spot is still available in the new year, we will try to use it again. But I will check how their building works are getting on, and post a message about the venue at least a week in advance.

    Please note that we may not be exactly in our usual spot. As noted in the text above, our usual alcove near the Lyttleton cloakroom (to your left when you face the cloakroom counter) may be closed off, because the theatre is starting some building works. If it is, we will try to be in between the Lyttleton CLoakroom and the Long Bar, but that might not work out, so try looking all around the foyer. We will have notices on the table that say Philosophy for All.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
