Would you like to get together with other people for some stimulating discussions in a relaxed atmosphere?

Some of us have been inspired by the growing number of community based group gatherings called Philosophy in Pubs and Public Places. These groups first started in Liverpool and now take place across the country. Have a look at the Philosophy in Pubs website to appreciate the scale of the movement.

Think! is our own monthly Philosophy in Pubs meeting. We generally meet on the first Monday of the month (but this can vary - please email to confirm), from 7pm until 9pm, at the Sportsman pub.

The discussions (or community enquiries) are relaxed, with groups large enough to enjoy diverse opinions, yet small enough to allow each person time to put their views across. As a contributor you can schedule your own subjects for enquiry and debate or you can just turn up and listen to the thoughts of others. Everyone has philosophical thoughts and as a group we would like to hear yours - whoever you are, wherever you're from and whatever they may be!

Respect for others and their opinions are a fundamental requirement of the group as it encourages people to put forward their views without fear of ridicule or intimidation. No academic or philosophical background is necessary - only a passion for enquiry.

Come and join us. The Sportsman Pub is at 1 St Johns Rd, Huddersfield, HD1 5AY (see map here).
