I live in Hackney and work in the charity sector. I'm interested in philosophy but never studied formally.
It varies according to the comfort zone of the topic. There does seem to be a struggle to discuss philosophical ideas attached to specific philosophers rather than offering general political, religious or social opinions. Comment outnumbers questions by a fair margin and it is often not relevant which is a shame when listening to a knowledgeable speaker on philosophy. Applying philosophical ideas to a wide range of topics, films and plays is exhilarating. The organisers clearly put a lot of work into very enjoyable evenings.
