Sir Karl Popper (1902-1994) was arguably the greatest British Humanist of the twentieth century whose influential books include “The Open Society and Its Enemies” and “The Logic of Scientific Discovery”. He was a member of the British Humanist Association and received the Humanist Laureate Award from the International Academy of Humanism. Group secretary Tim Stephenson will be talking about Popper’s “Critical Rationalism” for our November meeting.


In December 2016 we are hoping to have our usual Christmas Meal at the Tiger Inn.
