Do you find yourself pondering life and things and events in life philosophically?

Absolutely. The manner and extent in/to which I think is largely a resulted of my family background. I love to pontificate about many of life's most complex questions and issues; be it the very nature of the self, the meaning - or absence thereof - of existence, geopolitics, astrophysics, social stratification, global poverty and hunger, disease, culture (both foreign and domestic), criminology, sociology, and philanthropy to name quite a few (but not all!). My inclination toward introspection and self-analysis often has counterproductive results, unfortunately. I struggle with chronic, persistent depression and anxiety every day of my life. These ailments tend to color my thinking much of the time, and the longer I think and analyze the further away I seem to get from elucidation or any sort of epiphany. Nevertheless, I feel social sciences have always been important to human intellectual and cultural development.

Are you open to listening to others' philosophic ponderings?

I am not merely open to the prospect, I am eager to listen to and engage with others.

Do you think you would enjoy engaging others in philosophic discussion?

Absolutely. The chance to interact with those who ponder many of the same things that I do affords me an opportunity at camaraderie and learning that I may not otherwise have.

Can you fit the Cafe into your schedule (2nd Wednesday night of every month)?

No answer yet

Introduction

My name is Ian and I reside in Sandy Springs with my partner, Wayne. I enjoy the examination and exploration of ideas; the product of which doesn't really matter so long as the journey is invigorating.
