JAN 13

Talking Philosophy

13 January - 27 February 2022

We will discuss topics central to philosophy (knowledge, mind and body, and free-will) and engage philosophically with topics of very general interest (sex, war, and death).

We will take as our starting point Thomas Nagel's very clear introduction "What Does It All Mean?". Other short readings of interest to Quakers will be available, avoiding dry academic texts. In our discussions we will try to be clear, without turning away from difficult problems. We will try to practice simplicity and integrity when engaging with difficult philosophical issues. No previous knowledge - or lack of knowledge - will be assumed.

Live sessions are every Wednesday at 19:00-20:30 (UK time)
