The next meeting of Talking Allowed in Leeds is on Monday, March 12th at 1.45pm in Veritas Ale and Wine Bar.
It is reported that real books may have overcome the existential threat from ebooks. Whichever format you prefer, tell us about books which have changed you, books you would recommend to others and books you might give as presents.
The next meeting of Talking Allowed in Leeds is on Monday, February 12th at 1.45pm in Veritas Ale and Wine Bar.
We will be discussing the #MeToo phenomenon.
#MeToo has given rise to strong opinions, for and against. We might prefer to look at the sources of the campaign and ask if it indicates a new wave of feminism. We can also look at the role of social media and the use of the “court of public opinion”. We may ask how, in the long run, relations between the sexes could be affected.
The national conferences will take place in Liverpool on Friday 8th of June, Saturday 9th of June and Sunday 10th of June, 2018. A draft programme will be produced shortly.
A happy new year!
The first meeting of 2018 of Talking Allowed in Leeds is on Monday, January 8th at 1.45pm in Veritas Ale and Wine Bar.
Derrick will ask “Why study philosophy?”
In December we gathered some suggestions for further meetings this year. Topics included: identity politics, the prospects for democracy, debt cancellation (a jubilee),#MeToo and the relation between the sexes, and which book or books you would recommend.
The next meeting of Talking Allowed in Leeds is on Monday 11th of December at 1.45pm. The venue is Veritas Ale and Wine Bar, Great George Street, Leeds.
At this time of year we can’t book the small room at the back of the pub and have to find space in the main bar. So instead of our usual discussion we review the past year and make our plans for future meetings.
If you have a topic you would like to introduce, come and share your idea with us. Or just come and be sociable at this last meeting of the year.
