Inverurie Acorn Centre will host an evening with Aberdeenshire Philosophy Café tomorrow (Wednesday, December 4) at 7pm.

The speaker will be University Of Aberdeen's Dr Ceri Trevethan, and she will be leading discussions on the topic of Anxiety - what is it and what can we do about it?

The Philosophy Cafe is a charitable organisation, a partnership between Aberdeenshire Libraries and The University of Aberdeen, which provides a varied and accessible programme of academic led discussion.

The cafes have been running for several years and have attracted a mix of people interested in vibrant street level discussion on issues of the day.

The cafes are open to anyone in the community - no philosophy training is required, and just real life experience is desired.

Discussions take place in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere designed to encourage debate, the exploration of ideas and the promotion of critical thinking about society’s challenges.

The cafes also provide an opportunity for academics to share aspects of their research with the wider community.

Speakers enjoy the feedback from those taking part, actively invite comment on their topic and encourage participants to value and think critically about research.

All are welcome – the cost is £3 on the door including refreshments and the evening runs from 7–8.40pm.

Future Philosophy Cafe sessions in Inverurie include The Pros And Cons Of Genetic Engineering with Dr Dan Wall on April 1 and Intergenerational Communication: Do Younger And Older People Speak The Same (Body) Language? with Professor Louise Phillips on June 3.
