Philosophical Circle



Founding

It was founded on the 15th of May 1973, in the Geological Institute of Hungary (Budapest), by a few young geologists, headed by Dr. Csaba Detre.


Aim

Free discussion of the theory of the evolution of the living world.


Method

Free presentation and discussion of the most different views, disregarding the official ideology, the Marxism-Leninism, in a tolerant and friendly atmosphere. Interdisciplinary approach was an evidence to the participants from the very beginning.


Difficulties

The Circle was one of the first intellectual workshops of alternative thinking in Hungary. The mis-trust of the competent party organs could be overcome thanks to the help of the Direction of the Institute.


Development

In the 80-ies the thematic field was enlarged to embrace virtually the entire philosophy sensu lato. More and more people joined who were not employees of the Institute, amateurs and even professional philosophers. Environmental protection came to the fore.


Civil Organization

After the regime change, in 1991, the Philosophical Circle was formally registered as a civil organization.


Arrangements

Meetings were held virtually every week, usually on Fridays. Once or twice a year a full-day thematic conference was organized. The overall number of presentations has been up to 2.500.


Branches

Countryside branches were created:
Tokaj-Gegend (István Géczy) 1993
Sopron-Ödinburg (József Agócs) 1994
Bugac (Andrew Bánhidi) 1994
Alcsútdoboz (Ferenc Halász) 1997
Szekszárd (Tibor Horváth) 2005


Publications

Annals 1993, 1997, 2000, 2003. (in Hungarian)
