Practical Philosophy

We started meeting (three-weekly) two years ago and we try to keep our focus on practical aspects of the philosophers we study. This year we have looked at philosophies of the enlightenment, including Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Spinoza and Rousseau, and also Mary Wolstonecraft and Edmund Burke. We have also discussed Kierkegaarde, Mill and Feddie Ayer, and had an introduction to Indian philosophy. Planned sessions are on Schopenhauer, the letters of Seneca, how to choose a philosophy, Avicenna, Kant, Sartre and Wittgenstein. Numbers are restricted by space available. We do have room for a couple more members. If you are interested please contact Martin Manby on 0114 2306505
