Event Description

Tintern Philosophy Circle

We are very sorry to announce the death of Ray Billington at his home  in Tintern on Saturday 1st September. His partner Hatti was with him and she  says he died peacefully. Hatti intends to hold a celebration of his life and  work later this year. The Guardian, to which Ray was an occasional  contributor in its Face-to-Faith column, has commissioned an obituary. Ray and  Hatti founded the Tintern Philosophy Circle nearly 20 years ago and it has met  monthly ever since. Ray will be greatly missed as a good friend, a  philosopher of distinction, and an inspiring teacher.
At the next meeting of the Tintern Philosophy Circle on Tuesday, 18th September 2012 commencing at 7.30pm in the Rose and Crown we will begin  with personal tributes to Ray, following which John Clarke will  introduce a discussion of Ray’s philosophical ideas based on some of his  writings, focusing especially on Ray’s thoughts about religious experience  as expressed through art, music, nature and human love.
Maria Taylor’s talk on ‘Meaningful coincidence’ has been  postponed until the meeting on October 16th.
