About me

Occupation Owner and chair
Location London/Barnes, United Kingdom
Introduction My experience of philosophy (after being a jazz singer): my first philosophy degree was at University of York, which included formal logic, the ideas of many of the great thinkers in the Western tradition; then I embarked upon a Philosophy of Religion MA at King's College, London, followed by a Music MA; researching philosophy and music produced my PhD thesis entitled 'Plato's Gender Configurations of Music' at University of Manchester. Now that I have formally retired I thought it might be fun to have a philosophy club here in Barnes. This has been running since the end of 2010. When I started The Barnes Philosophy Club I had no idea where it would lead. But thanks to the support of The Royal Institute of Philosophy, and encouragement of Julia Bebington from Barnes Community Association and the Bull's Head in Barnes, the club has flourished: and I have recently added over 250 names to our mailing list.
