Tonight, Feb 8, Open discussion.

Philo Agora 2016

7 for 7:30 at 10 Shepherd St, Chippendale NSW 2008. (0457 749 310) Twice a month!

Philo Agora meets at Humanist House, 10 Shepherd St, Chippendale NSW 2008. We will meet on the second and fourth Monday of every month.

The second Monday will be our normal presentation from a guest speaker whilst the fourth Monday will be a less structured open forum for those just looking to hang out. Don't let the Humanist word worry you, we are still ratbag philosphers.

Unfortunately our speaker for today has cancelled due to flu. Tonight will be a general discussion on all things philosophical. All being well, John will talk next fortnight.

John Smyth on Existentialism, Sartre and Bad Faith.

John Smyth, a Philoagora regular attendee for the last eight years, will be giving his third presentation at Philoagora.

Using short audio clips from two expert philosophers we will be exploring:

What exactly is Existentialism about?
Who is Jean Paul Sartre and what does he have to say?
What does Sartre’s idea of “Bad Faith” mean and what is its relevance?

We usually finish up at 9pm. The cover charge is $5 for the talk. There are tea and coffee facilities available inhouse. There is plenty of street parking in Shepherd Street and surrounds.

The Broadway Hotel, a few doors down on Broadway, has re-opened as the Stone Crow. It is available for meals before the meeting and drinks afterwards.


We look forward to seeing you on the night.
