Our first meeting last night was very successful, due completely to people's willingness to offer information, opinions, and insights and to challenge each other. We hit a range of topics under the subject of individual freedom versus social responsibility. We also picked up someone from a nearby table who provided some strong points of view. Thank you all who were able to make it.
This is a weekly meeting, every Monday evening from 7 to 9 at the Java Brewing Company on Frankfort Avenue. Attend as your schedule and desire permits, there are no obligations. Show up alone or bring along some friends.
You're invited to join our Socrates Cafe group here in Louisville. The short description of a Socrates Cafe is people getting together to ask philosophical questions with the purpose of (maybe) getting a better understanding of the topic, philosophical inquiry, and realizing our own preconceptions. The discussion begins by people proposing questions to discuss; we vote on which question to use and then simply talk about it. Some possible questions include: "what is evil", "what's the state of the American Dream", and "is the death penalty ethical".
