Consciousness - Does it even exist?
Cosnsciousness is bandied about as if we all know what it means. Do you? I certainly need to sit back and think a bit. Does it even exist? If it does exist; are there different levels of it? If higher levels are beneficial; how might those states be achieved and maintained? So many questions. There is a reason why neuroscientists call the question of consciousness "the hard question". Come and explore this with kindred spirits in the delightful surroundings of the park at the Buttercross.

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 discussions that are Philosophy in the Park.

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 Buttercross tearoom in Central Park Peterborough and other places. Inspired by the Grantchester talks by the School of Philosophy, Cambridge (, which is affiliated to the School of Economic Science ( in London.

First Saturday of each month at 10am in the park (except January when it varies).

All are welcome
