Philosophy

This is a small friendly group ~ only five or six members currently – so new members would be especially welcome. No previous knowledge of philo­sophy is assumed. Group members are always welcome to present topics and sometimes have done. Otherwise the Leader presents the topic but with lots of room for group discussion. Topics are agreed by the group.

Scout & Guide HQ (Small Meeting Room - see below for access)
2nd Tuesday of the month
2.00 - 4.00 pm
  • Leader: Tim Miles - 01704 880597

Currently this group is not meeting due to Covid-19 restrictions. But I have set up an email ‘group’ for philosophical discussions. Contact me, Tim Miles, and I will send details and add you to the group. You can phone me on 01704 880597 to discuss it.

We cover a very varied set of topics – philosophy of science, of politics and of morality and more. Our recent topics have been:  August 2019 – What is mathematical truth? and September – Does global warming impose an obligation on individuals to restrict their carbon emissions? November – Kant’s moral philosophy, December – Virtue Ethics, January 2020 – Kant’s Prolegomena, and March – Utopianism

Topics for further meetings have yet to be decided.

Access to the Small Meeting Room is either through the main hall ie the Ormskirk Room (where there may be another group) 0r by the rear door. From the car park, walk past the main door. The rear door is just round the corner, facing the same way as the main door. It is normally behind a steel shutter which I will raise for the meeting.
