Topic: The Good Life

I am pleased to announce that the Philosophy Cafe of Walnut Creek has now become East Bay Philosophy Cafes and is now in two East Bay cities (Walnut Creek and Concord)!

To get the new Concord group under way, I have selected the topic, "The Good Life." As with the Walnut Creek group, the Concord group will brainstorm and vote on topics as a group in the future.

It has been my pleasure to work with one of the members of our meetup group to help set up the new cafe in Concord.

All members are encouraged to RSVP. If you are unable to make it to Concord, but know others who are interested, please spread the word!

Since we are meeting at a restaurant, I ask that if you RSVP, be prepared to make a purchase of at least $5.00 as a courtesy to the restaurant that has been gracious enough to let us host our meeting there. (http://www.raviolismarket.com/menus/)

Please make sure to RSVP only if you are able to attend since RSVPs are limited. If you RSVP, but need to change your plans, please make sure to come back to the meetup site to change your RSVP (at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting) to provide others with an opportunity to RSVP for this meetup.

We will meet in the back of the restaurant. Please ask the host for the "East Bay Philosophy Cafes" party, and he / she will direct you.

I look forward to seeing you!

    Intelligent attendees, topic was very worthy of discussion . The food and ambience of location was great. The only criticism I have is that one attendee digressed into an. Obvious and somewhat obnoxious political angle when I thought we were avoiding that sort of thing. Irrespective, a good time seemed to have been had by all.

    A beautiful canvas upon which we could all write our unique thoughts and feelings.

    Another successful East Bay Philosophy meeting. I was not disappointed and enjoyed hearing all the different points of view on the topic. As always, thanks to your facilitator skills, every one, I think, was happy and pleased that they attended tonight. Thank You, Lawrence. Nancy

    The Good Life, it seems to me, is wholly a matter of perspective. To the hedgefund manager, the good life is a resume of clever, high profit stock buys and an 8 bedroom house in the Hamptons. To the reporter, it's a series of high-powered scoops ending in a Pulitzer prize. To an artist, it's a large studio with endless paint and someone to bring in a tray of red wine & Gruyere at appropriate intervals. To a man adrift at sea, the good life is being rescued before getting eaten up by a wave. Isn't it gorgeous that we get to choose our own good life?

      I think the good life invvrs two main parts: finding who you are and then making a life w/ and out of what is feasible at the point of life when you find out who you are. It's not as easy as just sitting down and making a plan and executing it . I fell into that philosophy and lost done. Alia

    What is a good life? That is a good question. I would think that depends on one's own perspective, the choices made in life, the storms we have weathered, what we have learned by our successes and failures and what do we need and want for a good life. I am looking forward to meeting with other members and their outlook on the topic. Thanks Lawrence....
