Philosophy: The Basics

This will be a group that will not expect any previous knowledge of philosophy, where terms like Cartesian Dualism or Epistemology will not be thrown around as if they are already understood. It should hopefully also offer people who have been doing philosophy for a while the opportunity to come and take a journey back to basics: to explore why Descartes’ cogito is such a seminal moment in Western philosophy, what Kant meant by the noumenal-phenomenal distinction, or what philosophy looked like before Socrates.

The group will meet weekly on a Wednesday evening. Please see the calendar on the main page for up-to-date timing and location details, as well as what will be happening at each particular meeting.
