With increasing hyper-connectivity are we in fact getting more and more isolated?

Philosopher’s Cafe tackles isolation as its next topic of discussion

Come to the Philosophers’ Café as Senior’s Advocate Helen Whittaker leads a discussion on isolation in our society

Philosophers’ Café ask the question “Are we getting lonelier”

Why is there an increase in suicide among seniors? Could it be because they feel more isolated?

What does it mean when young people have hundreds of friends whom they have never seen? Are they isolated or are they hyper-connected?

Come to the Philosophers’ Café as Senior’s Advocate Helen Whittaker leads a discussion on isolation in our society.

Share your thoughts on whether we are becoming increasingly lonely or whether we are moving to a new form of social connection.

Once a month a speaker will introduce a theme to the Café, and then all who attend can join in respectful, non-partisan conversation, or just sit back and listen.

You are welcome to propose topics and introduce them at future Cafés.

Themes should be of broad interest and national significance, and have an element of controversy to them.

As with each Café, Helen Whitaker will have just 10 minutes to introduce the topic, and then the floor is open for 50 minutes of moderated discussion.
