ALL thinkers are invited to ponder on life’s big questions with philosophy students and lecturer in a Northbridge pub on Monday night.
The set of Pub Philosophy events was organised by Murdoch University students and staff to show how philosophy can be accessed by the average person.
Each event will include a public lecture, a panel discussion and a Q & A session on the chosen topic.
Murdoch University Philosophy PhD student Geoffrey Power-King said these events would help shed the misconceptions on philosophers being pretentious and elitist.
“We don’t use a lot of philosophical jargon, we just want to have discussion, a few drinks and cheap pizza,” he said.
“Most people engage or ask philosophical questions in their day to day lives anyway.”
Fellow PhD student Kyle Gleadell said asking questions about the world wasn’t just for the philosopher writing alone in his study.
“These are discussions we can have with any one of our friends, you don’t need a university degree or full-rounded knowledge,” he said.
WHAT: Pub Philosophy discussion
WHEN: Monday June 25, 6 – 8:30pm (on the last Monday of each month)
WHERE: The Moon – 2/323 William Street, Northbridge
