William Lane Craig’s Eight Reasons for God – Refuted

Sunday 19th April @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Norman Bacrac

In 2014, the American Christian apologist W.L. Craig set out his eight reasons for belief in God in the bi-monthly magazine Philosophy Now, issue 99. In this talk, the validity of these eight reasons will be critically examined by atheist Norman Bacrac. Also assessed will be the morality of a God who seems to require us to have the logically impossible faculty of libertarianfree will.

Santayana as Social and Cultural Philosopher

Sunday 12th April @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Mon, 23rd Mar, 2015
Tom Rubens

The Spanish-American philosopher George Santayana (1863-1952) has been an undeservedly neglected figure in British academia for many decades. This neglect is in marked contrast to the considerable attention he received in the first half of the 20th century. Santayana’s range as a philosopher is wide, covering ontology, epistemology, ethics, the arts and sciences, religion, political and social issues. Also, his language possesses classic clarity. So, a revival of interest in him is long overdue – as is, indeed, a talk on him to the Conway Hall Ethical Society.

Shipwrecked with Vincent Deary

Shipwrecked with Vincent Deary

“To live is to feel oneself lost” writes Jose Ortega y Gasset “he who accepts it has already begun to find himself, to be on firm ground. Instinctively, as do the shipwrecked, he will look round for something to which to cling”. In attempting to steer a course through life, we often find ourselves off course or even shipwrecked. What do we cling to in these difficult straits, and what North Star can take us back on course?’
