KANT'S CAVE: The quantum, the noumenal, and empirical reality (Kieran Quill)

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.

Our speaker this month is Kieran Quill. His full title (which the Meetup title box will not accommodate, because it limits us to 80 characters), is:

The quantum, the noumenal, and empirical reality: physics in the light of Kant and Schopenhauer.

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. The downstairs part of the pub is open all evening. Our room, on the first floor, is available from 7 pm, and the lecture starts at 7.30 pm.

If you have joined Philosophy for All (the organization, not just this Meetup group), and paid your annual subscription (£12 by standing order), there is no charge. But if you have not joined, we do ask for £2 as a contribution towards the cost of hiring the room. You can join PFA using this link:

    Excellent talk. Is there any way we could get a copy of slides, or a reference list?

      I'm a physics teacher and I would love to use some of the slides in my sixth form extension classes if they were available

    well worth my two quid, an excellent exegesis of the physics which consolidated some stuff I read on complexity theory, and some very helpful if marginally critical comments from the 'floor'. to say more given the context of format, speaker, questions, social and so on would be a disservice to the fact of the existence of such a keen group open to all, so again, very helpful to my project.

    Did this talk solve conclusively solve any philosophical questions to a standard where they would be impossible to disprove? If yes, which ones please? Thank you.

      Of yes Jesh. All of them, actually. Beyond all possibility of disproof.

      Amazing. I hope we who couldn't make the Meetup could have this shared with us when possible. Thanks

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
