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?

Confirmation Bias

"I had also, during many years, followed a golden rule, namely, that whenever a published fact, a new observation or thought came across me, which was opposed to my general results, to make a memorandum of it without fail and at once; for I had found by experience that such facts and thoughts were far more apt to escape from the memory than favourable ones. Owing to this habit, very few objections were raised against my views which I had not at least noticed and attempted to answer" (Charles Darwin).

Freedom. A Philosophical Enquiry.

The Self, the Scotsman and the Buddha

Take a moment, find a comfortable chair and sit down for a while. Take a deep breath and guide your attention towards your internal thoughts and perceptions. What is it you experience? Perhaps a particular sensation, an itch on your nose or a feeling of fullness in your stomach, maybe a meandering thought comes and goes or feelings of moderate contentedness or annoyance. Now, I want you to turn your attention further in and try to observe the ‘I’, the ‘me’ or the ‘self’ that is having all these experiences.
