Philosophy Café proves popular with residents

27 April 2016

The Philosophy Café, as part of the key theme ‘Communication without Barriers’ has got off to a fantastic start in 2016 with an ever growing cohort of members. The group meets once a month at various venues around Grangetown to discuss topics such as ‘What is it to be a good citizen?’ and ‘What is the good life?’

This month the group had a visit from critically acclaimed author of The Philosopher and the Wolf Mark Rowlands and had a lively discussion about animals and morality. The session was well attended by residents from around Grangetown and throughly enjoyed by all.

Philosophy cafeAt Community Gateway’s consultation event #LoveGrangetown on Saturday residents were asked to suggest themes for upcoming Philosophy café’s and a number of interesting topics were submitted including ‘Is it our moral duty to help refugees in need?’ The sessions are free and open to all so please come along, a date and topic will be announced in due course.

We look forward enormously to the next session!
