Welcome to the online home of the Bath Skeptics in the Pub!

Our events are organised with the rational people in Bath and the rural surroundings in mind! Events are open to everybody, no matter what your personal beliefs and opinions on a subject are. 

Talks take place on the second Tuesday of every month at The Westgate on Westgate Street in Bath. Entry to 'Bath Skeptics in the Pub' events is based on a suggested donation of £3. All donations help fund speakers travel costs and allow the comittee to bring in speakers from further afield for future events.

Socials take place on the forth Tuesday of every month at The Westgate.

Skeptics in the Pub (SitP) started in London in 1999 and has since spread across the globe - growing especially well in the UK over the last few years. Bath Skeptics in the Pub was formed in May '11.

What's the talk about?

The vision of a society formed from progressive equality was based on a claim of reason. For radicals of the 1790s and for a child brought up a socialist in post war Britain, inequality was fundamentally unreasonable - society could and should be organised on equitable and therefore rational grounds. Yet the French Revolution brought Robespierre and the Guillotine and the Russian Revolution brought Stalin and the Gulag. Have we expected too much of reason? Is reason confounded by the human condition? John Issitt uses the critical episode of radical challenge in 1790s to explore the limits of reason and ask whether life is essentially mysterious?

John Issitt is a writer and a part time lecturer at the University of York UK where he teaches philosophy of learning. He taught for the Open University for 23 years and is a National Teaching Fellow.
