Café Philosophy

ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY IF YOU RSVP "YES"! Since there are so many people on the waiting list, be sure to let someone have your spot if you are not totally sure you are coming.

Do you enjoy having casual intellectual discussions as a group and hearing other points of view?  This event might just be for you!  This event is being brought back due to its popularity in the fall of 2013.  Café Philosophy will happen every 2-3 weeks at various Waves Coffee locations around Greater Vancouver at 7 pm during the middle of the week (Tuesdays and Thursdays are most likely).  Every person brings a discussion topic with them on a piece of paper and they will be drawn at some point to be discussed.

Discussion topics can be large-scale or small-scale, but please make them specific as there will be limited time to discuss each topic.  Anything goes for topics as this is intended to be an open-minded event, but please make topics and discussions RESPECTFUL, and please respect others' ideas and opinions. Failure to be respectful will result in being banned from this event.

Try to be about 5-10 minutes early if possible.  The event will happen at the meeting room in the back (the Waves staff will be happy to direct you).

Looking forward to having lots of interesting discussions with all of you!

The Waves Coffee location for this event changes every Meetup so please note the posted address!!

    Hello! I'm actually quite excited for this event. But just to be sure (so that I know what kind discussion topic would be suitable), should I be bringing something a discussion topic that is deeply philosophical/rigorous, or would something simple and casual suffice? :)

      Last week, we talked about topics ranging from the "source of morality" to "the differences between friends and acquaintances". Just pick a topic you want to discuss.
