Philosophy

TEACHING

     Wivenhoe Bookshop. The next philosophy breakfast is entitled, ‘More Philosophical Passages’. It will start on the third of September 2022. (Relevant bookshop webpages: here; and here.) To book, please contact Wivenhoe Bookshop (23 High St, Wivenhoe; tel. 01206 824050; the email address is info[at]wivenhoebooks.com). Here (on this my own site, and as a PDF) is the syllabus.

     Ipswich Institute. The philosophy reading group resumes on September the 22nd, 2022. The course is on Ryle’s The Concept of Mind. For details see this webpage on the Institute’s website (but one must scroll down). Additionally, I shall be giving three talks at the Institute. The talks fall under the title, ‘Jokes, Experiments and Descriptions’ but each talk is mostly self-standing. Here are some details.

# Date Time Title
#1 30/09 14:00-15:30 Philosophical Jokes in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
#2 14/10 14:00-15:30 Thought Experiments
#3 28/10 14:00-15:30 Heidegger’s Hammer and Sartre’s Waiter

The talks are advertised, and further described, here (towards the foot of the page, at present) on the Institute’s website. One can book here (to book all three talks), here (to book just the first talk), here (to book just the second talk), or here (to book just the third talk).

     University of the Third Age, at Chelmsford. There may or may not be a future course.

     Philosophy For the Home-Educated, at Firstsite, Colchester: course postponed, due to the pandemic.

     I do private tutoring. However, I do not help with assessed essays (for, under most circumstances, that would be cheating). Nor will I help with plans for assessed essays (for that too could be cheating).

     Past teaching. I have run philosophy courses at two Colchester venues (namely, the lovely Red Lion Books and The Minories). In 2017 and 2018 I taught at Learning for Pleasure, Brentwood. I have worked with various tutoring agencies. I have taught at the Universities of Essex, Hertfordshire and Central Lancashire and at the Open University.
