July Philosophical Discussion Group

Please note the date change.

These discussions are limited to 10 people because I want just one group discussion rather than several smaller discussions.

We have free form philosophical discussions during these meetings.  I encourage people to bring a topic if they have something they wish to discuss. Our discussions generally tend toward personal discussions rather than broad analytical discussions.

If you are on the waiting list for the discussion, please check the meetup site the afternoon of the meeting and see if you have moved up to the attending list since people often cancel at the last minute.

Thank you all for your insightful input to the discussions.  I truly enjoy them.

    Didn't mean to cause such a "stir"! I totally understand the process, but it doesn't fit my life right now. Loved the meetings I attended (thanks again) but need to move on to something else (starting with Chad's book club I think)...Enjoy!

    Is there a solution? I feel very badly that there was one person still on the waiting list who did not get a chance to attend. I have enjoyed the conversations I have gone too, but don't want this to happen again (having somebody not able to attend because I received notification too late to attend). thanks. zemgt

      With some other meet up groups after three no shows , of a person without deleting their RSVP In a row , that they have been droped or relegated back In some way.

      I mark people no shows *if* I can see they got 18-24 hours notice that they popped off the waiting list or if they were on the regular list and didn't show. I don't mark people as no shows if they popped off the waiting list at the last minute because that doesn't seem fair--we all have busy lives and not everyone is tied to their computer or phone. So far no one has made it to 3 no shows that I know of. I don't see a way within the system, however, to make it so that people who have a lot of no shows cannot RSVP again to the events. If someone did have 3 and kept RSVPing and not showing, I would message them about it because that is not fair to everyone else to keep doing that.

    I totally understand and appreciate the meetings you allowed me to participate in..I guess I need to make sure I don't do this to somebody on the waiting list again and so should just drop out of consideration for this group. Thanks again. zemgt

      Do you have a smartphone? There's an app you can use, to check on meetup details pretty quickly.

      Zora, I don't think that's necessary. This has happened before you and will happen again whether it is you or not. You are doing your best--even if you managed to see it and decide you couldn't come, it doesn't mean the next person would see it at the last minute and be able to come. Just do your best--that's all we ask. :-)

    Where are we meeting? Downstairs by the coffee shop or upstairs?

    • Jim K.

      Hi Karlie - We meet upstairs in the conference room enclosed with glass windows looking out into the corridor on the 2nd floor. Big wood-top conference table in the center. You can't miss it. See you there. If anyone has questions, I'll have my cell with me - (210)[masked] - can receive emails and calls - not set up for texts.
