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 took place at the Exmouth Arms for the last seven years, but sadly, that was sold, and the function room which we used is no longer available. So now we are at the Cock Tavern, 23 Phoenix Road, London NW1 1HB.

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 is a £2 door charge for non-PFA members.
