Explore one question...

We are the oldest, continuously gathering Socrates Café in the World. Please add your voice to the discussion.

Socrates thought that understanding the perspectives of others made him a more excellent human being. In this spirit, the purpose of the Socrates Café is not to persuade others to our point of view, but to deepen our understanding of the views of everyone who participates.

Please join us this month for the next Socrates Café and another ninety minutes of philosophical exploration.

    After several months of some fairly specific questions; I thought it was a nice change of pace to have a very broad one. This month we tackled "What is art?". As always, great perspectives, interesting discussion and some surprising opinions. Thanks to all who attended.

      We select the topic at the beginning of the meeting. All the topics are submitted over time by members of the group and two topics are drawn randomly from a hat. The group then votes to decide which will be discussed. We have found it best to provide a "level playing field" and provide everyone with the topic at the same time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
