Welcome to The Toronto Philosophy Club!  This is a book club of sorts with a focus on cognitive science, philosophy of mind, philosophy of biology, and philosophy of religion.  Of course, foundational philosophical questions are here as well.  We meet in cozy pubs/restaurants and have lively, stimulating discussions.  Many of us have some background in academic western philosophy (quite a range), and the conversations hinge on this somewhat.  However, we do open up the table to many interests and backgrounds.  Philosophical types with a sympathy to questions about spirituality/religion are definitely welcome and we occasionally delve into the 'bigger questions' of life.

Our meetings centre upon readings and/or podcasts (think M.I.T. or Oxford lectures)!  There are usually a few themes or questions for the night and we do our best to keep on topic.  (Usually mildly succeeding) : )

 

Sample questions:

What does evolutionary science do to our sense of meaning?

What is time? Where does the past go?

Personal identity. Do we have a soul?

What is the nature of reality?

What do people mean by spirituality?

Epistemology. Do profound experiences have any information for us about reality? Is this a form of knowledge?

 

If you think this group might be for you please come out. We’d love to meet you.  And no matter what, we will ensure to have fun, and hopefully solve all of life's mysteries at the same time ; )
