***New members needed - Philosophy Group***

Ever wondered about the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything? (For answer, see below)

We are a small group of largely amateur philosophers who are interested in making greater sense of the world we live in by exploring what it means to be human, and asking questions such as, What is consciousness? Do we have free will? Is our universe real? Can we really experience anything objectively? What is the best moral system? Is morality relative? Do we have souls? Does God exist? Is there life after death? And many more questions.

We have found that we can learn far more about philosophy if we each write a paragraph or two on a given topic for every meeting. We can’t claim to have a rigorous academic standard, but our enthusiasm makes up for any lack of erudition. 

We meet on the first Tuesday of the month at Parkfield’s Community Centre between 2 and 4pm All seekers after truth are welcome.

Phone: Pauline on 01352 770639 for more information.


Answer: 42 according to Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)

What's New Calendar

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is an international self-help organisation for retired and semi-retired people, in their Third Age. It provides educational, creative and leisure opportunities in lifelong learning. The success of each U3A is that they draw on the knowledge, experience and skills of their own members.

Flintshire U3A is a vibrant association of groups, which meet to offer a wide variety of activities and interests.
These meetings also offer a chance to make new friends, share interests and develop new skills in an informal and friendly atmosphere.
