philosophy author to speak in Burnham-On-Sea
Philosophy Group will be visited by a leading philosophy author
Cox, who is widely regarded as one of Britain's top philosophers,
will be talking at the group's meeting on Wednesday 7th March
at 7.30pm in Burnham Community Centre, Berrow Road.
Cox is a published author many times over and an honorary research
fellow at Birmingham University. His speciality is making the
big questions of philosophy accessible to a wider public.
Philosophy Group's Richard Franks told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Gary
will be talking about his latest book, 'The Existentialist's Guide
to Death, The Universe and Nothingness', in which he takes the
ideas of existentialism to a wider, non-specialist audience, emphasising
the self-help and personal empowerment aspects of the theory with
more than a nod to Douglas Adams."
is a great opportunity for anyone who has an interest in philosophy
or who just thinks they might have an interest in philosophy to
hear an acclaimed author and speaker. It should be an entertaining
and thought-provoking evening."
will be free for members of the group and £1.50 for non-members.
