KANT'S CAVE: Lawyers, Blondes and Irishmen: The Ethics of Humour (A. Steinbauer)

On the first Wednesday of every month the PFA meets at "Kant’s Cave" for a lecture, debate and social evening, normally in the upstairs bar of the Exmouth Arms at 1 Starcross Street, London NW1 2HR. The Exmouth Arms is in a quiet residential street about five minutes walk from Warren Street, Euston and Euston Square stations.

Terri Murray is unfortunately unable to give her planned talk, "Ways of seeing", on this date, but she will give it on 7 May. Anja Steinbauer has brought forward to 5 March, her talk that had been scheduled for May. Her full title (which won't all fit into the Meetup title box) is:

Lawyers, Blondes and Irishmen: Who can make fun of what, when and how?

The idea of using the function room of a pub for our philosophy meetings is that we would like to combine serious philosophical activity with an informal exchange of ideas and views. We therefore invite everybody to stay on after the lectures for more talk and debate. All lectures start at 7.30 pm; the bar is open from 7.00. There is a £2 door charge for non-PFA members.

      Not quite, Lisa. You can become a PFA member by joining at this page:


      That involves paying an annual subscription, £12 if you use a standing order. For these talks on the first Wednesday of the month, we have to pay to hire the room. If people have joined and paid the £12 a year, we don't ask for any additional contribution. But we do ask people who have not paid that fee to contribute £2. Our other events are generally completely free.

      We use the money to finance events, the bulletin, our PFA website and the Meetup subscription.

    Hi, I would like to come to this, is there still space? Thanks

    March 4, 2014

      Hello Cia,

      Yes there is space. We don't limit numbers for these first Wednesday of the month events. Very occasionally, so many people turn up that the last few cannot get in, but that hardly ever happens. It is, however, more common for some people not to get seats, and to have to stand or sit on the floor. We have seats for about 50 people. So to make sure of a seat, try to arrive a bit before the starting time of 7.30.

      People do hear about these events by other routes, not just via Meetup, so more people will come than are listed here.

      Thank you Richard! (Thanks for messaging too, you're right, it doesn't send a notification!)

    The plan had been to have Terri Murray speak on this date, under the title "Ways of Seeing". Unfortunately, she is unable to give her talk on this date. Anja Steinbauer has therefore brought forward her talk from May. Terri will give her talk at a later date.
