If not already stated in your introduction - please state your reason for being part of this group (required to join). Do you have any ideas for topics? (Optional)
I'm interested in intellectual discussion and in meeting new people.
We have one volunteer discussion faciliator at each of our tables during our events to help keep the conversations on topic. Could you help out as an occasional facilitator? (No experience is required and notes are provided)
Please confirm that your MAIN profile picture clearly shows your face. We encourage this in order cultivate a sense of community in our group. If you would prefer to not show your face, then please at least provide your first name.
I'm from NY. I've studied and taught philosophy, mostly modern; mostly continental.
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. This Meetup group is now part of a network of over 6,000 members located in over 45 Meetup groups around the world. (Click here to view other locations).
- 6 people at each table (so everyone has a chance to speak)
- 1 discussion facilitator at each table (members take turns being facilitators)
- 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 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.
