UPDATE: Request for Comments
UPDATE: 15 November 2018 A huge Thank You to everyone who left comments on here and who privately messaged me. I have decided that it would be best to let someone else have the opportunity to run this group and inject some new life into it. This emphasis of this group has always been on Western Analytic Philosophy. If you do take over this group and you are not going to carry on this tradition, I ask that you change the name of the group to reflect your particular interests (so as not to confuse the current members). Thank you all again for joining this group and an even bigger Thank You to all who managed to make it to the meetings. Goodbye, and thanks for all the ghoti! ============================ REQUEST FOR COMMENTS Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone for joining this group. We now have over 400 members making it one of the largest non-metropolitan UK philosophy groups on Meetup. Despite having such a large membership, attendance at meetings this year has been muted. This is perhaps unsurprising as they coincided with Wimbledon, England doing well in a World Cup and the joint hottest Summer on record. As many of you know, although being a Meetup member is free, running a Meetup group as an organizer costs money. Unfortunately, without people attending meetings, there is very little reason to have a Meetup group. (It just becomes a money pit lining the pockets of Meetup.com in New York.) Due to personal commitments, I am not able to put on regular meetings throughout the year. I am now faced with 3 choices: 1. Let the group fold. 2. Seek help from interested parties with running the group. (Let me know if you're interested.) 3. Put on more meetings, cross my fingers and hope that attendance picks up. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts. Paul, organiser. NB Please note that over the course of the next few weeks, I will be removing inactive accounts that have not visited the site for over a year. If you feel that this group is no longer right for you, please take yourself off. (There is an option on the page to "Leave group".)

    What we're about

    A group for anyone interested in philosophical discussions, critical thinking and seeking answers to the big questions in life. All people are welcome. I started this group because I wanted to meet other philosophically-minded people. I'm looking forward to exploring the unknown with everybody.
