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.

    As a minority woman who has been attending regularly for months, I must say, I've never experienced anything but professional, friendly exchanges at every meetup. Please don't mistake these methods as a personal attack. Every discussion is mired in a carefully curated thought-provoking atmosphere - with deliberate purpose, to bring out the most diverse and challenging opinions from everyone at the table.

    I don't recall our descent into the place you're talking about. I must have missed it.

    These sound like fascinating topics. Unfortunately, there is only one "Humphrey", and I already RSVP'd for another venue.

      Not sure. I'm out of town this week so I'll scout the new place on Saturday and update the group then. Stay tuned.

    I am disappointed I can't make the upcoming meetup. I am a volunteer redcoat at Playhouse Square and this day will be one of my assignments. Hopefully, next time, but my day, when it pops up, is always Tuesdays so it will be hit or miss.
