Philosophy Cafe is back for another year
The cafes have been running for several years and have attracted a mix of people interested in vibrant street level discussion on issues of the day. Please note that this season's events will be held on the FIRST WEDNESDAY of each month and will alternate between STONEHAVEN and INVERURIE. We hope this will help you to plan your diary so that we see you at many of them.
The first event will be held on Wednesday 4th September in Stonehaven Library at 7pm. It promises to be a very interesting talk by Professor Bill Naphy on The Aberdeenshire Witches of 1597 so be prepared for some hair raising tales.
The cafes are open to anyone in the community, no philosophy training is required, and real life experience is more desirable. Discussion take place in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere designed to encourage debate, the exploration of ideas and the promotion of critical thinking about society?s challenges.
The cafes also provide an opportunity for academics to share aspects of their research with the wider community. Speakers enjoy the feedback from those taking part, actively invite comment on their topic and encourage participants to value and think critically about research.
All are welcome ? the cost is ?3 each including tea/coffee ?the evenings run from 7pm ? 8.40pm just come along and pay at the door.
