What we're about

May all be happy!

Everyone wants to be happy. Philosophy's sole aim and motivation is to make happiness available to everyone.

Philosophy for all. - Anybody can access the benefits of philosophy. Everybody can have that access through the explorations that are Philosophy in the Park and Orchard.

Socrates implied that an examined life is a life worth living so we explore all aspects of life from many different angles. Many of them arising from questions from members' everyday lives, problems and sources of happiness.


Meeting together for discussions on various philosophical topics at the Willow tearoom in Central Park Peterborough, The Orchard Grantchester and other places.

First Saturday of each month at 10am in the park (except January when it varies). And the Orchard usually on the second Saturday.

All are welcome

Assuming he is right; how could that be?

Are whingers doomed to failure and the enthusiastic destined to succeed?

Or is there more to it than that?

looking forward to exploring this phenomenon.

Philosophy is the love of wisdom.
