Meet other local Philosophers, thinkers, dreamers, curious people to discuss the world and what we know about it.

Why study philosophy?

"Philosophy is to be studied, not for the sake of any definite answers to its questions, since no definite answers can, as a rule, be known to be true, but rather for the sake of the questions themselves; because these questions enlarge our conception of what is possible, enrich our intellectual imagination and diminish the dogmatic assurance which closes the mind against speculation; but above all because, through the greatness of the universe which philosophy contemplates, the mind is also rendered great, and becomes capable of that union with the universe which constitutes its highest good."

—Bertrand Russell, The Problems of Philosophy, ch. XV, The Value of Philosophy

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
