The Cafe Philo in English's NEW EVENT : Buffet-Dinner on sunday 22nd September !

Hello all Philo Cafe friends !

As I promised in the last Cafe Philo In English we are organizing a Buffet Dinner Philo event !

It will be on sunday the 22nd of September from 7 : 30 to 10 : 30 at my St Michel Home (adress after RSVP).

We'll have the food ready when you get there and we shoudl start choosing the topic at 8 PM to finish the discussion at 10. Then we'll have some time to chat freely until we part.

Food and drinks will be provided and there will be a 20 Euro Contribution.

Since we will be at most 30 in the main room of the place, reservations are mandatory and will be valid only when confirmed.
Cancellations should be at latest the day before. You can email if you could not get on the list in case of cancellations.

Welcome all and don't be afraid to write great topics !

Sincerely Michael

    Also...
    Here's a quote by Buckminster Fuller that can fuel the subject about work that we didn't choose:
    "We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living."

    For my first time, I especially appreciated the subject, the intimacy of the place, the food and the atmosphere too. Thank you Michael for this organisation.

    It would be nice if you could confirm our presence and the address of the meeting before Friday afternoon, as after I won't be able to see my e-mails. Thanks! I'm really interested!
    Looking forward to meeting you,

    Hi Michael, I've never been to a café, does it make sense to come to a diner like this as a first?

    September 14, 2013

    • michaelm

      Hello ! Just saw your note. My answer is that it is probably...better ! this because there are gong to by fewer people than at The Flore (we are over 50 people) and no microphones, so it should in my opinion be more 'homey". I'll do my best ! sincerely mm

    • Marion P.

      Ok thanks. I think I can make it!

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for organizing!

      Dear Pablo, There wil be several proposals of topics but like in all cafe philos the discussion will be on one topic only. This is an event were one person speaks at a time, not a general conversation. By the way in one topic, you will generally actually always find several subtopics ! yours michael
