Questions of Identity in our Changing World

  • Thurs Oct 7thWho do we think we are – and why? Julian Baggini, the renowned, popular broadcaster & philosopher poses thought-provoking questions for all of us about notions of personal and communal identity and meanings of borders.    
  • Thurs Nov 4th:  Thinking The Borderlands with Romantic Literature.  David Stewart of Northumbria University considers questions, significances and special attributes of the Anglo-Scottish borderlands through the insights of familiar and unfamilar writers.
  • Thurs Dec. 2nd:  Reinterpreting The Declaration of Arbroath: Scotus, Freedom and questions for today's world. Philip Tonner from Glasgow University and Andrew Raymond Barr of The Illustrated Declaration of Arbroath, will be in conversation together raising historic and current questions regarding ideas of freedom, community and the values we want to improve our future.  

Please mark up your calendars to join us in good time at 7 for 7.15 on Thursdays Oct 7th, Nov 4th and Dec 2nd. Wherever you are, just ‘zoom-in’ and enjoy an hour's stimulating session with us and pose your questions to the speakers! 



As always, we welcome your questions & considerations put to the speakers either emailed to us beforehand to eventstwb2021@gmail.com or typed up and sent via the zoom chat box during the talk itself. We value your participation so we’re allowing plenty of time for Q&As.  Thinking Without Borders is about all of us sharing thoughts and ideas together with experts to stimulate thought and to address questions - though if you prefer just to listen – then that’s good too.  We look forward to you joining us.


Winter Series of zoom Talks, Thoughts and Conversations 2022:

We have some exciting possibilities for the Winter 2022 series and will post up details about our speakers and topics as soon as they’re firmed up.


Our annual David Hume Food for Thought Dinner

We hope that by April 2022 we can hold our David Hume Dinner again and invite you to enjoy the best of cuisine and wine in true Humean style! We know how much Hume delighted in these shared pleasures with friends and don’t we ache for them again?  We have booked Chirnside Hall Hotel for the evening of Saturday April 23rd so please mark it up in your diaries! We hope that come next Spring we can meet up for a really joyous and memorable evening together.

With every good wish as things gradually open up and all that lies ahead!
