Upcoming Topics/Events

Topic Proposed Date Time
Aristotle and what he got wrong! The group 18/02/2019 19:00
This picks up the lighter touch that Joseph asked for, but additionally, provides a foundation for the political philosophy stream starting with a discussion on Aristotle's The Politics, and with a bit of licence gives us the chance to talk about other Greek philosophers' political thinking, such as their views on philosopher kings, women and slavery.
So whats so wrong with European Law? Open forum 18/03/2019 19:00
As we head towards Brexit and leave behind the European jurisdiction managed out of Brussels, what have we rejected? This looks at the role of legal systems in society and explores a number of questions. Who makes the law? Who’s interests are best served by the law? Is the law better or worse if it is designed for larger communities? If we take back control of the law, who gets that control?
Machiavelli: father of political realism. The group 15/04/2019 19:00
Political Realism can again be traced back to the Greeks, but Machiavelli’s The Prince is often referenced as the text that promoted these ideas at the start of the Modern era. As in February, this topic should give us the scope to further develop our understanding of political theory, building on the foundations laid down by Aristotle and explore others that have taken the “might is right” approach to politics. I am sure we will have views on the fact that this approach is not confined to history.
Work: who needs it? The group 20/05/2019 19:00
Following the end of the Finnish trial of Universal Income, what lessons have we learnt? The future of work was raised in our session in January, so by looking at the Finnish experiment we should have some data to inform our discussion
