Overview

'Big Ideas is a series of events, mostly held in pubs in London ... Sessions generally start with a question. Someone who has some relevant expertise gives a very brief, informal talk. After that a discussion develops in a free and unstructured manner. It's not a lecture, and it's not a debate; it's a pub argument, but unlike any you've had before ... In case you were worried, Big Ideas isn't affiliated with any political, religious or other organisation, and we don't have any particular agenda ... Anyone is welcome to turn up.' ALERT At Review, I could not find details of any forthcoming events of this Group, as such.

Overview

‘The IAI seeks to challenge the notion that our present accepted wisdom is the truth. It aims to uncover the flaws and limitations in our current thinking in search of alternative and better ways to hold the world. The IAI was founded in 2008 with the aim of rescuing philosophy from technical debates about the meaning of words and returning it to big ideas and putting them at the centre of culture. Not in aid of a more refined cultural life, but as an urgent call to rethink where we are.’
