What we're about

If you are interested in joining our group please subscribe because we now meet via Skype.

We do not publish meetings any more but send out a personal message via the members list for information about the next topic.

PhiloMadrid is one of the longest running (2003-2004) Philosophy meeting groups in Madrid. We meet every Sunday to discuss issues and topics with philosophical implications. Topics are more applied philosophy in nature than academic philosophy. Think of Plato or Socrates meeting friends after lunch to discuss interesting topics rather than preparing for your school or university exam.

And if you think after eleven or so years of meetings there isn't much left to discuss, you'll be surprised!

Meetings are in English and everyone is welcome.

Our blog for past meetings is:

PS: As a group we don't have many rules but:

- we must buy a drink from the bar since we do not pay to use a venue. So I'm afraid this is mandatory.

- respect members of the group.

- we do not discuss religion or politics in Spain as subjects; and during the meeting I have the final say on the topic.

NB...I should point out that we also have a mailing list which is run independent of this group. Hence more people might attend than the RSPVs here.

PhiloMadrid meeting Skype 6:30pm Sunday 5th February: The new normal post Covid

Link visible for attendees

Dear Friends,

In view that this Sunday (5th February) will be the last Sunday before we try the experiment of Meeting on Tuesdays I thought it was proper that we discussed: The new normal post Covid.

I have not prepared an essay for the topic, but we have already exhausted the topic of Covid during the height of the pandemic.

--Oscar’s book is now available from Oscar himself:
"Toranzo, 88 ilustraciones y coplillas" by Oscar at €35
If you need more details please let me know and I’ll put you in touch with Oscar.

--It is with great sadness that I have learnt Julian Martelli passed away early in October this year, 2022. Julian was very active during our meetings in Molly Malone and participation was always respected by all. Christine kindly wants to share with us a photo of Julian with her and friends. You can find the FaceBook link below.

I also include a link for our visit to Toledo in 2008 when Julian came with us on the day trip.


--Jorge has kindly sent us the link to his book which is available for Free Distribution at:
Evolution of Thought and its Influence on Society and Technology

Please let me know whether you need the Skype link, thanks.

Best and take care
