An evening discusion/What philosopher or philosophy do you agree with, and why

Hi, so I am paralyzed by trying to think of a worthy topic of discussion so I would like to just do a small little discussion on various schools of thought you are interested in. I figure we all have our own favorite flavor of thought and we could mash them up in a measured discussion.

 Lola's is a small coffee shop on Roosevelt and has a long picnic table out back. I am estimating it will seat 10-15 comfortably so I will have to limit this meetup. I am looking for a bigger place for the future. Even the downtown library charges for their meeting rooms!

thx

    Considering last night's meeting was the first one for PHX Philosophy Meetup Group "2.0", I think it went quite well. My only suggestion is that we adopt a set of guidelines for facilitation and discussion; some do's and don'ts, if you will. Such as this one developed by Socrate's Cafe: http://www.philosopher.org/SC_Tips_One.html; just to give our future meetings more structure.

    I had a lot of fun, and enjoyed everyones opinions. One of the topics we started discussing was about good and evil, and whether it was the social environment or nature that led us toward one or the other. For those interested there is a TED talk titled the paycology of evil ( http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OsFEV35tWsg), it touches on this topic and the results discussed on it are very interesting. Again, i had a lot of fun andI am looking forward to the next one.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
