May all be happy! Everyone wants to be happy. Philosophy's sole aim and motivation is to make happiness available to everyone.

Philosophy for all. Anybody can access the benefits of philosophy. Everybody can have that access through the discussions that are Philosophy in the Park.

Socrates implied that an examined life is a life worth living so we explore all aspects of life from many different angles. Many of them arising from questions from members' everyday lives, problems and sources of happiness.

Meeting together for discussions on various philosophical topics at the Buttercross tearoom in Central Park Peterborough, in the Palmerston Arms and other places. Inspired by the Grantchester talks by the School of Philosophy, Cambridge, which is affiliated to the School of Economic Science in London.

First Saturday of each month at 10am in the park (except January when it varies). Various dates near the middle of each month for the Palmy.

All are welcome
