Overview

'We are a group of local people of all ages, both men and women, who have no formal in-depth philosophical training, but who love sharing ideas and learning new things in a supportive environment.'

Overview

'We are a discussion group of friendly and intelligent people who enjoy wrestling with philosophical topics, aiming for a poor-man's Olympia Academy or Cambridge Apostles! Promoting exchange through examination and reasoned argument, members shouldn't be averse to a little amateur scholarship. Different views - especially the unorthodox - are welcome but do expect to justify, critique, be critiqued and engage analytically with the ideas of others.'

Online Lectures & Talks
Overview

'The Philosophy Group at BRLSI endeavours to provide time for thought and reflection on many of the major questions of our time, both in the form of lectures by eminent speakers and through lively discussion in the Café Philo series. Philosophy is the love of wisdom and it starts with wonder. We look forward to welcoming you to our evenings of philosophical exploration.'

Overview

Occasional meetings: ''We normally meet in the bookshop café at eight on a Saturday Night. The talk lasts about an hour, followed by something to eat and a discussion phase that goes on to ten or a bit later - and afterwards in the pub for some ...'.

Overview

The Idea  ‘There are so many languages, religions and beliefs in Grangetown, but there are few opportunities to learn about the many different perspectives in the local area. A Philosophy Café has provided a safe, neutral space for different communities to share information about their beliefs in relation to themes decided by local residents.’

Overview

Philosophy for All is an association open to everyone interested in philosophy ... We organise monthly lectures at Kant’s Cave ... The idea of using the function room of a pub for our philosophy meetings is that we would like to combine serious philosophical activity with an informal exchange of ideas and views. We therefore invite everybody to stay on after the lectures for more talk and debate.‘
