East London Philosophy Club 011

Benugo - The Warehouse

The East London Philosophy Club is a free format discussion group meeting on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. Open to all. No previous philosophical experience necessary. Here's how it works: 1. We open up with everyone pitching in different questions to discuss. Everyone is welcome to suggest a question. It should try to be relatively brief and not assume too much. 2. We then vote on each each question. You can vote more than once for different questions. The questions with the most votes are the questions we discuss. 3. We then break into groups and each group does a different question. The question is just a starting point and it's cool if you go on tangents and up end talking about different things. You're welcome to join in and participate or if you'd prefer you're welcome to sit back and enjoy the conversation. After an hour we all come back together,take a quick break and then repeat all over again. So in 3 hours we go around 3 times. The aim is to have fun, meet new people, generate interesting and thought-provoking conversations, have your horizons expanded, challenge your preconceptions and who knows - you might even learn something. If you don't know - Philosophy is a way of thinking about the world, the universe, and society. It works by asking very basic questions about the nature of human thought, the nature of the universe, and the connections between them. The ideas in philosophy are often general and abstract. It's about thinking about thinking and trying to learn how to think better, further and clearer... We're based in The Warehouse on Commercial Road - feel free to grab a drink or order a pizza. Word to the wise: you can get a pizza and a pint for a tenner if you arrive before 7pm. Afterwards some people go to The Castle pub for post session drinks and you're very welcome to join: http://www.thecastlelondon.com/ Please note: No homework or prior knowledge or reading is necessary - simply come and enjoy the discussions. We hope to see you there.

Barbican Philosophy Club

Barbican Library

Do you have a curious mind? Do you like thinking about thinking? Would you like to know more about the fundamental questions of life, the universe and everything? The Barbican Philosophy Club is an all ages group dedicated to discussing ideas, having fun and expanding the limits of your mind. Located in the Barbican Arts Library on the 2nd Floor of the Barbican Centre. This month we will be exploring the question: What is Utopia? For those of you old enough: when the session finishes there will be a few of us heading to the pub: it's called The Masque Haunt and it's a 5 minute walk from the library. If you would like then you are very welcome to join us: https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pubs/all-pubs/england/london/the-masque-haunt-old-street
