Kant's Cave: Wednesday 2 October 2019

The GeorgeOn the first Wednesday of every month the PFA meets at Kant's Cave for a lecture, debate and social evening. This normally takes place in the upstairs function room of the Cock Tavern in Somers Town; however as the Cock is not available on Wed 2 October, this meeting will be in the Talbot Room at the George, 75-77 Borough High St, London SE1 1NH (about three minutes walk from the Borough High St exit of London Bridge underground).

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; there is no bar upstairs but the downstairs bar is open all day. There is normally a 2 door charge for non-PFA members, but in October this will be 3, as the room at the George is a good deal more expensive than our usual venue.
