About Philosophy Salons
Hosted by a current philosopher, Philosophy Salons actively explore one important philosopher and their ideas over a social night of wine & cheese. Philosophers selected over these evenings include a mix of thinkers from different periods, schools of thought, geographical locations and backgrounds. Participants will be presented with a biographical background of the philosopher, along with three of their most relevant and proking ideas and will be given opportunities throughout the night to then discuss these in small groups, making for an interactive and social evening.
