What would you like to get out of NYC Socrates Cafe?

I'm just glad to have a chance to listen, discuss, and muse upon big questions with some thoughtful people. I like the new thoughts, images, and perspectives that arise for me on such occasions.

Tell us a little bit about yourself

Grew up in Louisiana. Great Books program for college. Still blows my mind that I live in NYC. Hate the cold. Enjoy reading and teaching and learning. Yay math!

What topic questions would you like to see discussed in this group?

What should the aims of education be? How should adults treat children? What kinds of knowledge are there, and how are they different? Is love a cogent concept?

Introduction

Hi all! I enjoyed my first (intentional) Socrates Cafe tonight. I once ran into one in Washington Square Park. I'm a math teacher who read some philosophy in college, and before and afterwards. Looking forward to more good conversations.
