Philosophy in Huddersfield

Philosophy in Huddersfield (Philosophyinhuddersfield.org.uk) is a hub for all philosophical activity in the town and surrounding area. We aim to encourage community of enquiry groups, courses and workshops in philosophy as well as forming links with other organisations and comunity groups whose work includes philosophical activity.

The website of the Southport PiPs groups.

Members use the site to share information, post comments in advance and in continuation of enquiries and add information of interest for topics yet to come. Here you will also find downloadable copies of useful documents e.g. PiPs vision and principles, enquiry guides and other (hopefully) useful information and contacts etc, especially if you are interested in starting your own group.

The site shows the currently active groups in Southport:

Tales Around The Fire Tales Around the Fire promotes the oral traditions of story telling, singing and poetry in the magic ambience of firelight, natural acoustics and the keen ear of a supportive audience.
The Bluecoat Art & Cultural Centre
The Duncan Society The purpose of the Duncan Society is to stimulate debate, discussion and understanding on contemporary issues and policies which affect the health and quality of life of the people of Merseyside and Cheshire.
The Havant Philosophy Forum We are actively seeking new members for this relatively new yet vibrant PiPs group. We treat one subject per month chosen in loose rotation by each member. We are pretty light touch over the choice of subjects, but try to be philosophical in the approach we take to discuss them.

We are 6 regular members, but would welcome 2 or 3 more for "safety in numbers" and fresh views.

For more details please email the group organiser Eddie via: info@philosophyinpubs.org.uk

Our Next Meeting is: 21st Feb 2012 @ 7pm.
