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, 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

Has religion passed its sell-by date?

Online event

With over 80% of the world population declaring themselves as religious, this question may seem fatuous. And yet, the currently prevailing scientific view that dominates the politics, media, education, and the national health systems around the world is distinctly secular, or even atheistic. The talk will examine this glaring conflict of the worldviews, in an effort to answer the question: whether religion passed, or not, its sell by date.
