Study Groups, Two

Study Groups, Two

There will be two groups going this year, and next year perhaps two more will be started. The first is studying Whitehead and meets next in Room C.17, Weir House, on Friday, August 1, at 8 p.m. The second studies the American philosophers and meets in the alternate week. In addition there will be general addresses to the club as a whole and anyone who likes to come along, given by competent outsiders or student members of the staff perhaps on the less accessible topics of philosophy. There will be one more of these this year, maybe two. Finally, the club as a whole will meet occasionally to discuss any current book of generally philosophical nature, which book will be announced well beforehand so that those coming will have a chance to have read it. Also, on those occasions someone will have been detailed to give a short talk round which the discussion may centre.

The upshot is that this club is enthusiastic enough, also possessed of a certain commendable determination, yet also liable to an amiable philosophical frivolity attractive enough to those willing to have eyes to see. The only disqualifications from participation in it are grave, very grave, intellectual deficiency and a sincere unwillingness to learn.
