Peter Gelderloos "Worshiping Power" book tour, Norwich

Dear friends,

I'm sharing details of this event put on by DIT Collective on the 21st June, 7pm at The Vauxhall Centre, Johnson Place, NR2 2SA, Norwich, Norfolk.

Peter Gelderloos is coming to Norwich as part of a UK speaking tour for his recent book, Worshiping Power. We're excited to be able to help make this happen in our city.

Norwich Philosophy Circle. 16th March @ The White Lion, 6.30pm

I would like to invite you to this event some friends in Norwich are organising.

Norwich Community Philosophy Circle encourages equal participation by all in the community in the questions that matter to us. In the group we leave the books on the shelf but knowledge and experience are equally valued. All we ask is curiosity, a willingness to listen and a respect for others opinions.

Book Launch. The Alternative To Capitalism.

Saturday 11th March at 1pm. Space Studios, 5 Swan Lane, Norwich NR2 1HZ

If you are interested in political philosophy you might like to come to this event. It will not be a Socratic dialogue facilitated event like the ones at The Forum but there will be plenty of time for discussion.

This is an event to publicise the relaunch of Theory And Practice, a small scale radical book publishing project based in Norwich, UK. Current titles can be viewed at www.theoryandpractice.org.uk

Personal Identity

Dear friends,

Thanks to everyone that came along to The Forum today, and hello to everyone else that could not make it. If you'd like to think about the issues we discussed this time I would recommend having a look at the writings of Derek Parfitt. He was a highly influential philosophy of recent decades on the subject of personal identity, he sadly passed away earlier this year.

This video from Philosophy Tube is a good introduction:

A Philosophical Dialogue About Personal Identity. Saturday 28th January at The Forum, Norwich.

This is not a lecture. It is a dialogue in which anyone who wishes can participate. It is about talking and it is about listening. But most importantly of all it is about thinking, considering and reconsidering not only about the thoughts and arguments of others but those of our own. No previous knowledge of philosophy is required.

But what is philosophy?
