What we're about

Hello and thank you for showing an interest in joining our group.

We're a mix of people, some interested in finding out about philosophy and others that have studied or taught it. So, whether you've studied philosophy before, want to come and see what it's all about or just fancy an interesting conversation, you'll be made welcome in this friendly group!

1) We meet once a fortnight on a Tuesday. You can choose which meetings to attend of course but you should be prepared to attend at least once every 3 months or so.

2) Topics are usually decided at the meetings and often emerge out of our discussions but feel free to suggest something.

3) We are based in Dundee and we meet at the Bank Bar in Union St, Dundee, DD1 4BN.

4) The times of the meetings are usually 7pm, please try and arrive on time: The formal discussion finishes at 9 and a less formal discussion for those that want to continues until closing time! Our rules, respect etc. still apply.

5) The chats we have cover a wide range of topics (well it is philosophy!) and range from academically informed to dime store/pub philosophy. All opinions are welcome and respected (albeit with the caveats of no racism, no sexism, no homophobia etc.)

6) Other than simply being polite, it is good to know how people many are coming so we can make sure we bag enough table space.
