We return to the Impromptu Philosophizer, this time as a break from the previous four meetings that have derived their topics from Part I of my book: Ethical Empowerment: Virtue Beyond the Paradigms. Our next meeting will begin our discussion of the eclectic topics that comprise Part II.
The regular Impromptu Philosophizer introduction follows:
An Impromptu Philosophizer is a casual meeting at a cafe or pub that may or may not have a specific topic, and may even be scheduled “on the spur of the moment!" It's great to know that there is now a way for philosophically minded people to meet but with no particular agenda other than that of satisfying the need to talk about what's on your mind. Whether the interest or concern involves current events or politics, cultural or intellectual issues, personal stuff, pure philosophy or whatever else is on your mind we can all benefit from sharing philosophical persp-inectives.
"Therapy for the sane," a term used by Gerd Achenbach (founder of the modern philosophical counseling movement), may partially suggest the Impromptu Philosophizer concept but it is more multifaceted than, say, an occasional "therapy" session after a trying day. IPs are designed to be fun, engaging and unique opportunities for creating a near spontaneous venue to meet other group members for the purpose of sharing thoughts, ideas and concerns from a philosophical perspective.
Impromptu Philosophizers are spontaneous, existentially driven meetings and discussions. Of course, continue to check back often for the scheduling of the somewhat more structured, topical meetings that are regularly scheduled by Boston Area Philosophy Discussions!
