Where people come together in community venues… and share ideas about life’s big questions… in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
Philosophy in Pubs (PIPs) is a grass roots community organisation promoting and practising community philosophy in the UK and worldwide. These discussions take place regularly in venues around the country. Anyone can attend, anyone can propose a topic for discussion, and anyone is welcome to start a group where none exists. A visit to a PIPs enquiry costs nothing more than the price of a drink and a small voluntary donation. Feel free to check the schedule or search the map below to see if there’s a discussion happening at a time and place that suits you. Respect for others and their opinions are a fundamental requirement of the group, as it encourages people to put forward their views without fear of ridicule or intimidation. No academic or philosophical background is necessary, only a passion for enquiry. Just turn up and enjoy.
