Practical Philosophy open for new members

I am pleased to say that Practical Philosophy is now open for new members.  

We are now into our 5th year and we are a diverse and enthusiastic bunch, open to learning from all philosophical traditions. Recently we have looked at the Essays of Francis Bacon; Julian Baggini’s “How the world thinks”; the rights of women (Mary Wollstonecraft), and men (Tom Paine); and Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Paul Tillich. In the new year we will be exploring Mary Daly (American feminist philosopher); Hannah Arendt; Gandhi; Jewish thought and Moses Maimonides; civilisation post Coronavirus; and global warming.  

Our aim is to keep our focus on the practical implications of the philosophies / philosophers we study.  

We have been pleased to be able to meet via Zoom meetings and found some benefits from these (e.g. – no travel problems in winter!) 

We always benefit from new members, and have space in the new year for others to join us.
