Philosophy

Programme Spring and Summer 2017

The group continues to study the development of philosophical thought from pre-Socratic times to the present day.  We are using a new series of half-hour lectures on DVDs in The Great Courses series. The designated leader, having previous viewed the DVD and the transcript, prepares an introduction, setting out some of the main concepts covered in the DVD lecture. This takes us about an hour when we break for refreshments. In the second half the leader will have identified some questions to focus our general discussion on the issues raised earlier
