In the Philosophy Group, we aim for 'transformational conversations'. Come at 16:00, grab a drink, join a group, and have fun engaging and exploring the topic! We don't espouse any position, or seek consensus on any point of view. The discussions start at 16:30 sharp, so please be punctual. See you there!
