Everyone has an "inner philosopher" waiting to express itself. Whether your interest in philosophy is formal or casual, this group is for philosophy lovers of all persuasions (such as): Platonists or Aristotelians. Radical socialists or Ayn Rand laissez-faire Objectivists. Mystics, atheists or scientific naturalists. Existentialists or....other existentialists. Philosophy is more than profoundly stimulating to the intellect, it can be just plain fun! The group is oriented towards Western philosophy but explores the perspectives of Eastern philosophy as well. The intellectual discussions can range from matters that are purely speculative or theoretical to practical philosophical considerations of current political, social and cultural developments or controversies. Each meeting opens with a lead question, topic, or philosophical quotation to get the conversation off to a running start. However, the meetings are not highly structured and are designed to go with the flow of the dialogue and of the personalities in the group. We meet at restaurants, cafes, and pubs and, when appropriate, in classroom or seminar settings.

A unique feature of this group is the Impromptu Philosophizer: A short-notice, near-spontaneous meeting that is an opportunity to philosophically ruminate and connect with others concerning matters ranging from light-hearted to soul-searching.  Thanks for stopping by!  --  Arthur Schwartz

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.
