Philosophy Night at the Church Inn

Philosophy with a difference, at this great pub. its 'blind philosophy' time again ;-) We will pull ideas out of a hat (or something like that) all evening. Please bring one idea for a topic with you, and then write it down on paper on the night. if you don't bring a topic with you please feel free to just come and join in the conversations. What we would ask is, that if your idea is pulled out, you kick off the conversation with a few words. Meet there from 7.30pm

hopefully the weather will be nice so we can sit on their wonderful roof terrace, if its quiet enough ;)

    I really enjoyed my first meet up today. Thank you for making me feel so welcome. I'm just annoyed I had to leave before I discovered the meaning of life.

    My hat subject last time was “are philosophers driven to study philosophy because of unresolved issues?”

    This closely related to “How can we be sure of what we know?”

    I copied & pasted the following points from

    http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/tech-support/201405/4-reasons-you-cant-trust-yourself

    4 Reasons You Can't Trust Yourself
    Unconscious biases make us lousy witnesses and judges of our own lives.
    1. Suggestibility and the alteration of memory.
    2. The hindsight bias
    3. The impact bias.
    4. The confirmation bias
    I realise that this line of analysis stems directly from psychology but the reality tunnels that we create for ourselves are related to the meaning we give to our lives. This is the only way we can interpret philosophy.

    hiya, hope you're all well. I've recently joined the group and really want to come to this meet up. I was wondering if there is a specific point to meet. thanks (",)
