Get Real returns for 2014

The first Get Real philosophical discussion of 2014 will take place on Wednesday 8th January. Get Real is a philosophical discussion group that meets Wednesdays 12 – 1 in the Multi-Faith Centre at the University of Derby. The group was first formed in September 2007 and has met each week during academic term times ever since. At the beginning of each session, a random philosophical question is pulled from a tin and the group as a whole decides whether to discuss that question, or whether another one should be chosen. Any attendee is welcome to add a question to the tin to be debated at a future meeting.

The discussions are free and open to all. A broad range of viewpoints are always represented and the group as a whole promotes no particular philosophical outlook or school of thought. Discussions can see Existentialists debate with Pragmatists the issue of free will or Atheists discussing the merits of equality with Christians. All levels of experience and ability are also represented and welcomed, regular attendees range from undergraduate students to emeritus professors.

Food is available courtesy of the Multi Faith Centre fair trade lunch, which is a wonderful spread that can be accessed in return for a small donation. If you are interested simply come along on the day or feel free to contact me for further information.
