Philosophy for all.

Socrates implied that an examined life is a life worth living so we explore all aspects of life from different angles.

Meeting together for discussions on various philosophical topics at the Buttercross tearoom in Central Park Peterborough, in the Palmerston Arms and other places.

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

All are welcome
