London Socrates Cafe Pages

Socrates Cafe is a philosophy discussion group that is open to absolutely everyone. It takes place in a relaxed environment and there's no obligation to talk, but we encourage everyone to join in. There's no homework, no readings to do, no lectures. Socrates main aim was to question all ideas we held – so all you need to do is to come along with an openness to question your own beliefs. It's all about bringing philosophy back to the people!

We normally choose the discussion topic together in the meeting. The sessions are facilitated to some extend to try to keep everything on topic and give all attendees a chance to speak (if they want to).

The idea is to have an open-ended discussion, without necessarily finding a definitive conclusion. It’s more important that we can express our opinions and assumptions, questioning our own beliefs (and preconceptions), and hearing other people's opinions. At the end of the discussion, participants should better understand the topic and their own assumptions and beliefs, as well as possible contradictions in their opinions.
