We have 2 Philosophy Groups:

Philosophy 1

Group Co-ordinator: Joanna O’Connor: 01799 522 260 or

Spring Term 2018 – We are now meeting on the first Tuesday (not Monday) of each month and our first meeting this term will be on Tuesday 9th January at 10.30am at 13 Peaslands Road, SW – Subject – Karl Marx.

We meet from 10.30-12.30 on the first Tuesday of each month at 13 Peaslands Road in  Saffron Walden. There is no fee but a small donation for coffee and biscuits will be appreciated. Numbers are limited to the max of 12.

No previous knowledge of philosophers or their philosophies is necessary but an open mind is essential, and the willingness to participate in discussions and to lead a session on a self-chosen theme at least once.

The idea is to discus general  themes of interest to the participants eg: justice, the visual media, power, governments, etc as well as the introduction to philosophers and their theories.

This group in now full but for further information or if you would like to be put on the waiting list, please contact Joanna O’Connor: 01799 522 260 or or join Philosophy 2 group.


Philosophy 2

This is a new group which meets at 10.30am once a month on a Thursday at the co-coordinator’s house in Saffron Walden. We have a small core of members but would like to increase our numbers.  If you are interested then please contact Denys.

Our next meeting is next Thursday 9 Feb at 10.30 at the co-ordinator’s house.

All are welcome and no previous knowledge of philosophers or their philosophies is necessary.
