Invitation to Join the Wonder Reading Group


The ancient Greeks thought philosophy began in wonder. Thomas Aquinas believed it to be a desire for knowledge. Heidegger thought that we have ceased to wonder altogether and at the end of his life Wittgenstein mysteriously claimed that he had lived a wonderful life.

Ever wondered about wonder?

If you have ever wondered about wonder, its nature, meaning, facets, application or value why not join the new Wonder Reading Group.

Meetings: This autumn we are scheduled to meet once a month at a location in Durham. The first meeting takes place on Friday 14th September, 14:00-16:00 Chapters of Durham Tearooms, Durham City Focus Ronald L. Hall’s ‘It’s a Wonderful Life: Reflections on Wittgenstein’s last Words.’  For further information please contact Jan B. W. Pedersen.
