Kant's Cave

The Cock Tavern, Chalton St, LondonOn the first Wednesday of every month the PFA meets at Kant's Cave for a lecture, debate and social evening. This has been taking place in the upstairs function room of the Cock Tavern, 23 Phoenix Road, London NW1 1HB; however as there are some building works going on there at present, meetings are being  held in the back bar.  This space is not ideal for a formal lecture, but we are looking into ways of improving it.

The idea of using the function room of a pub for our philosophy meetings is that we would like to combine serious philosophical activity with an informal exchange of ideas and views. We therefore invite everybody to stay on after the lectures for more talk and debate. All lectures start at 7.30 pm; the bar is open from 7.00. There will be no door charge for non-PFA members while we are meeting in the back bar.
