Knowing One Another Through Philosophy


An exciting new project by Brick Lane Circle

Do you want to apply high-level critical thinking to smash racial and cultural prejudice? If yes, then come to the ZOOM PROJECT LAUNCH, THURSDAY 8 APRIL, 6.00-8.00 PM

Presentations on the project

The project will recruit and engage diverse community participants and provide them with training on the basics of philosophy. The participants will then apply critical thinking in a systematic, step by step manner, to dissect and analyse local community cohesion issues.

Training workshops – Tuesday evenings

1 June – 13 July 2021, 7.00-9.00 pm

Logic by Dr Gabriel Apata

Eastern Philosophy by Dr. Radha D’Souza

Epistemology by Dr Gabriel Apata

De-colonial perspectives by Mama D. Ujuaje

Space/architectural by John Bell

Political Philosophy by Dr Halima Begum

Ethics by Dr Aminul Hoque

Each participant will explore a particular factor responsible for causing community cohesion problems – such as xenophobia, multi-culturalism, religious extremism, white nationalism, racism, parallel lives, stereotyping, fake news and othering – and apply philosophy to dissect and analyse the matter systematically and share the outcomes of their enquiries.
