Topic: Iris Murdoch: A Very British Philosopher?
Speaker: Dr Vanessa Dodd


Novelist, essayist and moral philosopher, Iris Murdoch is often remembered for her decline into Alzheimer’s depicted in the 2001 film Iris. In this talk I hope to recover some of her standing as a moral philosopher and philosopher of art by exploring the key philosophies which dominate her thinking.

Bob Clarke will talk on 'Historical reflections on the 'Two Cultures' controversy (1959-1962)?'
In May 1959, the scientist and novelist C. P. Snow delivered at lecture in Cambridge, entitled ‘The Two Cultures’ – ostensibly they were the Sciences and the Humanities. An ensuing controversy became very well-known across the English-speaking world. Through this talk we will attempt to understand it within a broader historical context, delving back as far as 1798.

John Clarke will talk on 'China and the West: Clash of civilisations?'
John writes: A long time ago I was glad to be offered a teaching job in philosophy at the University of Singapore since, like many of my generation, I was drawn to the 'mysteries of the orient'. Alas no mysteries. The philosophy taught there was exactly the same as the philosophy taught in any British University. Even my ethnic Chinese colleagues showed no interest in Chinese philosophical traditions. So it was only on my return to the UK that I embarked on a study of those traditions, and this led me investigate the relationships and influences between the intellectual cultures of China and the West. I wrote several books on this subject, including Oriental Enlightenment: the Encounter between Asian and Western Thought. This is the context of my presentation which relates specifically to recent talk of a 'clash' between China and the West.

Tim Cross will talk on 'What on Earth were they thinking of? The beginnings of philosophy?

Tim studied philosophy at Oxford University and lectures on economics and business studies. He writes: From the modern continental thought of the June session, we go right back to the beginning of western philosophy before the invention of the term ‘philosophy’. His talk covers the so-called preSocratic philosophers in the ancient Greek world starting from about 600 BCE. This was a key period in the development of western civilisation, just after the composition of the Iliad and Odyssey (approx. 750 BCE) and the development of coinage (approx. 620 BCE).

Topic: "The skull grins in at the banquet"
Speaker: Mark Kirwin


Mark Kirwin writes: Death, the perennial cure for all diseases, has long been a subject of deep fascination for many of us. We’re in good company as it’s probably the root of all philosophy. Our relationship with death, how we reflect or refuse to reflect upon it, seems key to understanding many puzzles about our species.

Event Description:

The next meeting will be on Tuesday 15th December at 7.30 online.
Topic: The rise and fall of logical positivism: key issues in 20th century philosophy
Speaker: John Clarke


One of the most contested issues in 20th century philosophy was between those like A.J. Ayer (with his best-selling book Language, Truth and Logic) who sought clarity and down-to-earth empirical certainty at all costs, and those like Karl Popper (with his speculations about an 'open universe') who, while giving science an important role, believed that philosophy should explore issues that embrace wider traditional metaphysical questions

Topic: Massacre of the Innocents: On Historically Shifting Registers of Humanitarianism, and Why it Matters Today
Speaker: Professor Simon Cottle


Images, as well as words, are sometimes good to think with. This illustrated presentation reflects on the changing historical registers and shifting sentiments evident within depictions of atrocity over many centuries. It asks what these may tell us about the deep historical currents running through human society up to and including the globalised present.

Topic: The Freedom to Choose
Speaker: Keith Ray

I am calling the talk 'The Freedom to Choose' which has been taken from Viktor Frankl's book 'Man's Search for Meaning'. A Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry in Vienna, Frankl survived 3+ years in various Nazi death camps during WW2. I will be sharing some reflections on how Frankl's wisdom not only inspired me in my lifetime but in my view offers hope for those currently experiencing human suffering with their mental well-being which the covid pandemic is being held responsible for.

Speaker: John Clark
Topic: Democracy: where it came from and where it is going to


The talk will briefly chart the evolution of democracy and the institutions necessary for it to function. It will explore how these foundations have been shaken in recent times by the growing complexity of political discourse, the swing to fervent nationalism and the emerging dominance of social media. And it will discuss the relevance of civil society in redefining democracy for the times we live in and for shoring up these foundations. It will present a personal take on these issues from someone whose career has focused on the roles of civil society in development, governance and holding the powerful to account.
