How do we know about the world?
Do we know about the world?
What defines a chair?
What is the nature of language?
Does God exist?
If these questions intrigue you, then you might be interested in joining the Post-Museum Philosophy Discussion Group. No background in philosophy is required.
The first of this 4-part series begins with a session on Epistemology.
Epistemology is the study of knowledge. In this session, we will think about ways in which we come to acquire knowledge about the world around us, and perhaps, discuss how knowledge is justified. We also look at the problem of scepticism about the world around us, distinguishing between appearances and reality.
There will be a ten to fifteen minute presentation to warm up the group and to provide stimulus for discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss core topics in philosophy in a small group setting.
Friday Night Philosophy Cafe will be facilitated by Lishan Chan. Lishan has an MSc in Philosophy from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a BA (Hons) in Philosophy and Politics from the University of York.
