The BIG IDEAS book club is a monthly meet up which provides a space for participants to discuss content related to some of the important issues in our lives. Originally called the 'Phil-Psyc' book club the discussions will continue to focus on philosophy and psychology.
Each month a topic or person will be selected for discussion. For example, a topic could be something like 'freedom', 'leadership', 'consciousness', 'the self', etc. Similarly, the person would usually be a notable thinker from philosophy and psychology i.e. 'Sigmund Freud', 'Karl Marx', 'Noam Chomsky', etc.
For each topic a key text and video material will be suggested. The attendees are not required to have read/watched these in order to attend and are welcome to engage in your own reading/viewing material.
This monthly Meetup will be hosted by Dr Steve Mayers (who also facilitates Café Psychologique Sydney) and will take place on the second Wednesday of each month from 7-9pm at The Horse Surry Hills.
