Podcast #3 – Community Philosophy

In this podcast Dr Jan Huyton talks about how Community Philosophy based on a community of enquiry method – first developed by SAPERE – can potentially bring about transformative change in the lives of people and communities as diverse as prisoners and senior managers.

Jan discusses the influence of Raymond Williams on this approach and the work of the Raymond Williams Foundation (and the more scholarly) Raymond Williams Society.

Philosophy in Pubs has further information about local Community Philosophy groups around the UK and advice on how to set up your own Philosophy in Pubs group.
