Online Lectures & Talks
Overview

‘On April 19th 1880 at 17 Bloomsbury Square a group of five men met to discuss the establishment of a new student organisation for the serious discussion of philosophy.  Far from a gathering of professional academic philosophers, the group included a British Socialist activist, a Shakespeare scholar and importantly a young chemist – Dr. Alfred Senier – whose original idea it had been, along with some of his students, to set up a philosophical society ... Since its foundation, The Society has provided, and continues to provide, a welcoming forum for philosophers and non-philosophers alike to listen to high quality talks and to engage in philosophical discussion.'

Overview

Annual Women in the History of Philosophy Lecture 'Women make up only a minority of philosophers, and an even smaller minority of philosophers in the history of the profession. Indeed, it can be easy to get the impression that women's contributions to philosophy are only a very recent phenomenon. But this is not true. The Sheffield Philosophy Department has decided that it wants to increase awareness of the work of women throughout the history of philosophy, and so is now sponsoring an annual lecture on Women in the History of Philosophy.' Also other events which can be open to the public.

''The Philosophical Society exists to advise and encourage anyone who has an interest in philosophy, and to help students who attend classes in philosophy organised by OUDCE (Oxford University Department for Continuing Education) ... Seven philosophy weekends are held each year, at which two or more invited speakers of distinction give lectures on a selected topic. During the weekend ample opportunity is given for questions and discussion. Mealtimes and coffee breaks provide further opportunities to discuss topics and to get to know other members of the Society. In addition, a member's day is held once a year, at which the speakers are society members ... Although weekend meetings are open to everyone, most of those attending are members and they provide an enthusiastic core who guarantee the success of the weekends.'
