I came across an interesting piece of news. The town of Malmesbury (the home of Thomas Hobbes) in Wiltshire is hoping to market itself as the first offical UK philosophy town!


  1. That is interesting--but I wonder what the precise implications of this official status would be? Philosophy festivals and so on?

  2. I guess it would be whatever they say it is!! They don't seem to want to go through any state bodies to organize this, and seem to be going for something like Hay-on-Wye book festival
