Group leader: Chris Skerry - Contact Chris

This group is not currently accepting new members. If you would like to join this or a similar group, please register your interest. That will allow us to notify you if a place becomes available. If enough people register an interest we will try to create a new group.

We meet from 10.00 a.m. to 12.00 noon on the third Wednesday of the month at the Sunny Side Hall, 14 Webb Lane, Hayling Island, Hampshire, PO11 9JE

Special free parking arrangements are available. There is a kitchen where members can make drinks.

We discuss a topic previously chosen by a group member. She/he then introduces the topic, followed by a discussion where each member contributes as much as they wish. In some cases, material is sent out before the meeting to enable the group to prepare.

Currently, the group is larger than ideal, and we are looking at ways to form another group.

Many members use the internet to discover relevant information, which enriches the discussion. We have a coffee break after an hour, which enables general conversation. Topics covered in the past, include:

  • Plato
  • Ideology
  • Arne Næss
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Assisted Suicide

as well as the thoughts of individual philosophers ranging from Confucious to Marx.

No previous knowledge of philosophy is needed, and an open mind is a big advantage.
