New Date and Venue for May Meeting

New Date: Thursday 19th May 6:30-8:30pm.
New Venue: Seafront Room, White Rock Hotel

For anyone not familiar with the venue: White Rock Hotel is almost opposite the Pier. The Seafront Room is on the left as you enter through the revolving doors. There is also a bar on the right as you enter which you are free to use, before and after the meeting.

Speaker: Lesley Arnold-Hopkins
Subject: A celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of David Hume

This will consist of a short presentation about his life, times and ideas, together with a discussion of these and related issues. One of the subjects he is associated with is whether an Ought can be derived from an Is; which is the subject of the most recent book from Sam Harris (The Moral Landscape). Other issues he is famous for are the evidence necessary to prove a miracle, and the reliability of inductive reasoning - and much else I'm sure!

No charge for this meeting, though we may accept donations.
