Philosophy and Our Lives is a NYC meetup that dwells in the tension between individual life, lived for the first and last time, and civilization as a shared creation over generations. Can philosophy be of any value to our being in this world?

We read and discuss the uniqueness of the present moment - the philosophy of our time - through the lens of thinkers such as Nietzsche, Camus, Sartre, Adorno, De Beauvoir, Benjamin, Kant, Kierkegaard, Spinoza, Husserl, Habermas, Levinas, Kafka, Althusser, Buber, Hegel, Foucault, Baudrillard, Zizek, Lyotard, Arendt, Heidegger and others.

Philosophy is a relentless interweaving of the actual and the potential. Anyone who is interested in metaphysical questions such as and now what? is welcome to join and engage in ideas!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
