What we're about

Hello and welcome. I'm thinking of setting up a new group to chat about books and philosophy.

It would be lovely to meet up in a cafe and discuss ideas or books of interest and inspiration.

I can always arrange the venue and time that works best for everyone and we can meet a couple of times a month.

First let's look at what Mathematics is, by discussing the following:

• Pattern
• Symmetry and order
• Quantity
• Structure
• The Fibonacci Sequence - Numbers that we see in nature
• Abstract Concepts
