At each seminar, we discuss a short philosophical text, or tackle a philosophical question. This month's text is John Locke, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, Book 2, Chapter 27, Of Identity and Diversity. The text is available here:
We want to keep these events reasonably small, so that we can keep the discussion focused, and so that everyone can participate. Please book your place by using the RSVP button. If you book and then find that you cannot make it, please cancel your booking, so that someone else can take your place.
The venue is the main ground floor foyer of the National Theatre on the South Bank. We will try to be as near to the downstream end as we can (the end furthest from Waterloo Bridge). Unfortunately, our usual alcove near the Lyttleton cloakroom (to your left when you face the cloakroom counter) may be closed off, because the theatre is starting some building works. If it is, we will try to be in between the Lyttleton CLoakroom and the Long Bar, but that might not work out, so try looking all around the foyer. We will have notices on the table that say Philosophy for All.
We will normally start at 7.45 pm, but when the main theatre's play starts at 8, we will start at 8.15, so that the foyer is clear for us. Please check each event, to confirm the time.
This seminar will be conducted by Richard Baron.
