• Philosophy In Pubs

    The Cumberland Arms

    A friendly philosophical saunter, based on Liverpool’s popular “Philosophy In Pubs.” Anyone can bring a question, and the group will vote and discuss the most popular one each time. People of all levels of knowledge and interest are welcome. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.

  • Philosophical Explorations

    Lit and Phil

    Philosophical Explorations aims to apply philosophical thought and method to any subject matter or topic of concern to society or observant individuals within it. The idea is to approach any aspect of life, wearing a philosophical hat as it were, that is applying a measure of argumentation and justification, adhering to reason and logical precision, making use of cumulative philosophical thinking over the ages, broadening each subject to its full implications above and beyond particularities and contingencies, seeking that which underpins opinion by unravelling undisclosed basic assumptions and formulating an underlying existential position in life. Above all, Philosophical Explorations invites us to subject our stand to a dialogue with others, by opening up a space in the mind as a precondition of careful and considerate listening, an ongoing examination of our opinion in relation to that of others, a willingness and readiness to allow one's own stand to incorporate, indeed be transformed, by the growing wisdom of the group in the process of philosophical exchange. What is therefore desirable in this group is a philosophical attitude and an openness of mind. The most commonly accepted definition of philosophy is that of “thinking about thinking”, that is a double move at the outset, where all reflections are simultaneously subjected to meta-reflections. This habit of mind, whilst not intuitive or normative in society, is at the very core and an indispensable attribute of Philosophical Explorations. Everyone is welcome to join in. A contribution of £2 is requested, for those attendees who can afford it, to cover the room hire costs.

  • Women Philosophers

    The Northern Stage

    We meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month, covering a different woman philosopher each time. At the minute we're running this group remotely- via email exchanges and possibly, video call. If you'd like be included in this please contact us. Best wishes and stay well! NPS
