Topic Proposed Date Time
Is war functional for society? Open forum 21/10/2019 19:00
Is war functional for society? Some of you may recall that last year Mike encouraged us to look at Emile Durkheim’s theory that crime is functional for society. This approach moves beyond that idea and, perhaps, gives a different slant on Just War theory. Are there any positive consequences to large scale violence?
Have our politicians let us down? Open forum 18/11/2019 19:00
Have our politicians let us down? We have seen recent referendums capture the attention of the public and lead to large voting turnouts. However, have the resultant divisions and political turmoil been worth it. This is a non-partisan look at the machinery of today's politics and those that manage and/or exploit them. Are there better alternatives? What do contemporary philosophers say on these matters? What you say on these matters, matters much more! This is the last, at least for this year, in our series on political philosophy.
Stepping through the Ages Open forum 16/12/2019 19:00
There have been numerous attempts to categorise the various phases of life, such as the Three Ages of Man by Titian or the Seven Ages of Man by Shakespeare. These artists have used their talents to examine and express the challenges we all face as we transition between different stages in our lives. The Philosophy of Change looks at how we live our lives and cope with these changes. How do we handle these challenges today and are there new factors that will make this easier or harder for our children?
