Book group: On Liberty – J.S. Mill

  • The Albion Beatnik

    34 Walton Street, Jericho, Oxford OX2 6AA (map)

    51.758022 -1.263778

  • The book shop's not a big place so we should be obvious. If there is another event on the ground floor (sometimes there's poetry or jazz), we will be in the downstairs area (ask the owner if you are unsure where we are).
  • Please read the book for the session in advance of attending. The first part of the session will be communally giving an overview of the book. The second part will be evaluating the book, what value we think it gives and what weaknesses it suffers from.

    The store's owner, Dennis, has kindly agreed to offer us a 20% discount on these books - so do get in touch with me (Ben) if you are interested in taking up this offer and help support our local independent bookshop.

    The planned schedule for our first few meetings is as follows:

    2nd Aug: Beyond Good and Evil – Friedrich Nietzsche
    6th Sept: The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
    4th Oct: Discourses – René Descartes
    1st Nov: Ways of Seeing – John Berger
    6th Dec: The Social Contract – J.J. Rousseau
    7th Feb: The Communist Manifesto – Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
    7th March: On Liberty – J.S. Mill
    4th April: Orientalism – Edward Said
