To learn more about thinking in greater depth and detail. I've always thought long and hard to myself and this seems like a good opportunity to try putting some of my thoughts into words with other people and hearing what ideas they have, to expand my horizons. As a start I completed an Introduction to Philosophy MOOC with Coursera in 2013, very interesting but not the route I would like in order to pursue the subject more. I also attended the talk in St John's Church at the beginning of April about The Philosophic Fool, which is where I learnt about this, from their handout.
Finally retired from work Dec 2012 and have been exploring new things to do. Always interested in meeting new people and learning new things.
This was my first visit and I really enjoyed it. Pleasantly surprised to see so many people there. I really think I learnt something too. I will be attending more in the future. I like the location but there is not much room when there are so many people there. If there ever is a new location I hope you will still choose somewhere central.
