Welcome to Practical Philosophy Kent

A ten week evening course in Practical Philosophy

Meetings with Plato in Tenterden, Kent

Tenterden.

Plato ran an Academy in Athens dedicated to the love of truth (Philosophy). His dialogues of Socrates' conversations are peppered with challenges, wit and occasional outrage. If you would like to get acquainted with his work and see how relevant his observations of the human condition are to you and our world, then join like-minded people this Autumn.

We will be studying the Sophist; the dialogue which explores the nature of those who want to be paid to teach philosophy. Are they to be trusted, is their reasoning sound or specious and do they cut their cloth to suit their clients' wishes?

In studying Plato's dialogues we consider that the questions asked by Socrates should be taken personally. Are we Sophists from time to time?

The study meetings are drop-in gatherings, not a course, so it is perfectly acceptable to come along when you want to and see how it goes. You can bring a friend if you wish. You do not need to be studying Practical Philosophy to join in.

No prior knowledge is required to join the group; just a willingness to question, read, listen and apply reason is all you need.

There is no charge for the meeting, just a contribution for the refreshments at each session.
