What we're about

This group is on hold until government restrictions on meeting in groups are lifted and it is safe to do so.

---

Join us to discuss philosophy during walks on the beautiful Hampstead Heath and in Victoria Park, followed by drinks at a local pub.

We meet roughly twice a month, once on Hampstead Heath and once in Victoria Park. Come to either one, or both!

Hampstead Heath Philosophy Walk: Kant's Critique of Pure Reason

Hampstead Heath

On this walk we will be exploring Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. Considered by some to be the the start of modern philosophy the book is still highly influential. We will be investigating Kant's ideas around empiricism, reason and the limits of metaphysics and grapple with Kant's epistemological concept of transcendental idealism!

You don't have to read the whole book before attending (it is known as a notoriously hard read!) but please at least have a look at some other sources to get familiar with the arguments in the book.

The organisers don't necessarily endorse the views of any of the authors or philosophers being discussed. The only rules of the event are to follow current government covid related guidelines and to keep all discussion friendly and constructive. We don't stick to the paths and the heath might be muddy so bring good footwear!
