Philosophy Book Club


Posted on | August 19, 2011 | 2 Comments

Hi welcome to our website, the idea behind the philosophy book club is to gather like minded individuals together in a social setting once a month, to discuss a different philosophical work each month, explore what it is it says, and its relevance to today’s world and society.

All that is required of you is an enquiring mind and a readiness to engage with other likeminded individuals in the exploration of great ideas.

We have secured a venue, it will be held upstairs in the Phoenix Bar on Union Quay in the centre of Cork City and our first meeting will be on Monday the 23rd of April at 8pm.

I am expecting someone from the Philosophy Department in UCC to come along and address the meeting, to suggest our first book and to give us some pointers as to the best way to read a book of a philosophical nature.

I am looking forward to meeting people on the night and I’m hoping that a big crowd will attend.


If you are Interested in coming along, please email me at, or just come along on the night.

We are now on facebook, I would urge all of you interested in the club and that use facebook to visit us and like us, so that you can be kept up to date on any developments. You will find us at Philosophy-Book-Club It will also give us an idea of numbers that might attend.

All are welcome.

    Maria It really doesn’t matter how you get your hands on a copy, but I believe that this is not a widely available book so I think you may have to buy it, it will cost you €5:17 and that includes postage, other books that we will be reading will be more widely available and most will be downloadable free from the Internet as there copyright will have expired.

    I’m not sure if you were there last night, but it was a great success, there was nearly fifty people there (much more that I had expected) and there was a great excitement for the idea, I hope to see you at later meetings.
