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.

    Sorry that I missed it this last week guys. I was on vacation in California. I hope that it was a great discussion. I look forward to seeing you guys next month.

    If anyone has recommendations on literature or art they've enjoyed that's shaped their point of view on the question "Why do we think?" please do share. Bill has a "Thinking" thread created in the Discussion section of this site.

    I am also sorry that I couldn't make it. I have been wanting to come for 6 months now, ever since I arrived in Cleveland. I cannot come next month, but will hopefully make it in September. It sounds like a great group.

    Sounds like you guys had a great time. I am sorry that I couldn't make it----but something came up at the last minute. I will see you at the next one "inshalla".

    Donald, Members contribute questions on slips of paper. They are placed in a jar. Two are chosen by chance. We vote as to which to discuss. The question is then passed around the table with each person giving his/her first impressions/comments. Then we have an open discussion on thee topic. Finally we each take a turn giving our final comments. Each person may participate - or not - at any point.
