PhiloMadrid on Skype 6:30pm Sunday 16th January: Morality (cont)

Dear Friends,

Last Sunday we had a very interesting discussion on morality to the
extent that we are continuing with the topic this coming Sunday.

This came about after a short time reminiscing about Alfonso during our
past meetings. We agreed that this Sunday we can have an extended
discussion about the works by Alfonso and our friendship with him. The
best biography we have about Alfonso is that found in the Wikipedia, see
the link below. I will also read the messages I received from our dear
friends who knew or met Alfonso.

As a consequence it was suggested (apologies, I don't remember who) that
we should also talk about the morality of death. To which we can add:
the morality of money (and making money); if we are unique individuals
how can we have moral standards?; moral issues when we use language.

--------Previous email
It is with great sadness that Ruel discovered and informed me that
Alfonso Vallejo passed away on the 3rd December 2021 (19 August 1943 – 3
December 2021).

Alfonso was one of the first members of PhiloMadrid at the Molly Malone
Pub. He was a regular participant over the years until a few years ago
when his ailments made it very difficult for him to leave home. Also, he
always encouraged me to continue with the meetings whenever he called me.

I am sure we all have our memories of Alfonso during the meetings.
However, if you wish to share your comments please leave a message on
the blog or write to me to post your comments. In the meantime you can
read more about Alfonso:

This Sunday we are discussing: Morality

The topic was proposed by Sisa and in my short essay I try to identify
some key morality issues in the twenty first century.


Finally please send me a message for the Skype link and if you have

video to save on mobile phone batteries for those connecting with a
