Heart of Philosophy


While I haven't fully explored the authenticity of the web page, and the contact email address bounces, it looks more like a failed attempt at honesty rather than a successful deception. CAPPE, an offshoot of Melbourne Uni, is a philosophy group with a silly acronym. They are giving some authority to this new organisation, which is organising a series of informal philosophy gatherings. Fortnightly from Feb 23rd, located at Murmur (a small watering-hole in the city), they will be providing both presentations and company for anyone who is interested. Their website can be found at :

It looks like a great opportunity to forge social contacts in the philosophy arena, and a good night too.

Email has been fixed now. From their response :

"I spent quite a few years running a philosophy cafe in Brisbane and after a bit of a rest since arriving in Melbourne- am now branching out again. Heart of Philosophy is a Philosophy Events company and this year we are cooridnating the cafe and working towards some lectures, a membership program and other special events. We have also been able to build some strategic relationships with Melbourne Uni, Readings and Kino Dendy which bring lots of possibilities."


"So its all a bit of adventure and I am keen to connect up with Melbourne Philosophy people and see what you are doing..."

Hopefully we will see more of these people in future...

Looks interesting, I'm keen to come along and see what eventuates. I went to the Murmur website, to find:

"Every second wednesday @ Murmur is trivia night, with themes ranging from 80s teen flicks through to animation and beyond"

I guess it's ironic for either the polar-wednesday to be 80's trivia, or that the 80's trivia night has been replaced by discussions on the meaning of life.

What if the 80's trivia crowd gets the wednesdays mixed up, and ends up quoting Men at Work discography's in reverse order to the tone of metaphysics? An interesting night indeed!

Philosophy and a vegemite sandwich. It could work...

I have a soccer bye, so I will go along this Wednesday and "network".
