If not already stated in your introduction - please state your reason for being part of this group (required to join). Do you have any ideas for topics? (Optional)

Having a richer appreciation of ethics is an increasing part of my personal intellectual journey and I’m particularly taken with the reassertion of enlightenment values by thinkers such as John Rawls and more recently Susan Neiman. I may or may not have actually read them. In reality I've been mostly aided by podcasts like philosophy bites, the philosopher's zone, and simple pop-philosophy crib note type books. That Amsterdam is both the ground zero for the enlightenment and the world's most 'bicyclingist' berg is, I think, not unrelated. At the other end of my philosophical inquiry's arc is a bucket-list wish to possess half a clue of what Wittgenstein was actually on about. So, there's been plenty to think about, but, frankly I have few within my circle of friends with the same curiosity. So… food, alcohol and big ideas! What could possibly go wrong?

We have one volunteer discussion faciliator at each of our tables during our events to help keep the conversations on topic. Could you help out as an occasional facilitator? (No experience is required and notes are provided)

Yes

Please confirm that your MAIN profile picture clearly shows your face. We encourage this in order cultivate a sense of community in our group. If you would prefer to not show your face, then please at least provide your first name.

What Tim G. is saying about this Meetup Group

Something really does do justice to the expression Mind Food (unlike certain magazines I can think of). Definitely worthy of another table or so however, so tell/bring your friends.
