This group is for people who value and enjoy deeper discussions with amazing people and who are also willing to rise to the occasion by joining us to help make these discussion opportunities an ongoing reality.
The events held in this group are all about having fun nights of great people and 'deeper' discussions over dinner in a charming restaurant. This Meetup group was created by Glen Brauer as part of a non-profit global initiative using practical philosophy to bring together strangers to build community (see PhilosophyConnections.org). The first Meetup group was started in Toronto and now has approximately 300 members. This Meetup group is now part of a network of 1600+ members in 30 Philosophy Dinners Meetup groups around the world. (Click here to view other locations).
Our events involve the following proven formula:
Thought-provoking questions (discussion notes) are provided by Glen Brauer to the facilitators in order to stimulate the discussions. The feedback from these events held around the world has been very positive. (Click here to view feedback). There are no membership fees in any of these Meetup groups but a small fee is required when signing up for events which goes towards Meetup costs, the time required to research and produce the discussions notes, booking restaurant reservations, scheduling the events, and coordinating the facilitators.

Are you waiting for events to be scheduled in your City?
If you're waiting for the first/next event to be scheduled in this Meetup group then this is most likely because a suitable venue is still being researched. If you know of a suitable venue which is close to public transportation, is reasonably priced, takes reservations, and which is not too loud, please click here to send an email to Glen Brauer.
Connecting Members Around the World
A new project has been started by Glen Brauer in order to provide the ability for members of various Philosophy Dinners groups to communicate with each other via video chat sessions.
