More common feelings and popular statements about contemporary society matters rather than philosophy. The topic was "What it should be forbidden". Tons of examples and counter-examples zig-zagging without too much construct.

Sorry, running to late today. Until next time. Christopher
Anyone wanna talk philosophy at the Moose on Sunday nights? LOL
How I was looking forward to tonight's meetup ...but jet lag has turned into pure agony.
What qualifies as a "pro" philosopher? Published books/articles, a teaching position?

Good question...How about : an extensive knowledge of the classical philosophers ? This does not make the amateurs less intelligent. But it doesn't hurt to know what people have thought about before us, no ?
Not being a philosopher pro and not even 'amateur', I consider a pro, someone who has had an education up to doctorate and publishes in good level journals. This does not exclude self-trained philosophers, and not publishing scholars. It is just more unlikely.
I look forward to attending when I am in Paris in early 2014!

Hi Michael, I just RSVP'd for January 8th but the meetup calendar still reads Jan 1st..am I being a bit "titillante", as you say? The need for certainty and clarity is not a luxury for the anxious and capricious mind!

Thank you Michael & Happy Philosophical Holidays to all!
Sorry wrong month - I suddenly realised I missed last night :( and I won't be here on January 8th. At the end of January I'm heading off to Zambia for 6 months. So I guess that means good-bye for now. wishing you all the best and a fantastic holiday season, Marion

This is a "Classic Philo Cafe".
It happens once a month in a cafe in the Latin Quarter (Cafe de Flore).
It is public, free (but you must buy a drink) and it lasts 2 hours from 7 to 9 PM on a wednesday.
Topics are proposed by the attendees and then one of them is chosen on the basis of its interest as a topic for all.
People speak one at a time (there is a microphone).
The "model" is the Cafe des Phares (in french) which is every sunday at the place de la Bastille from 11 AM to 13 PM.
It's fun, ....and serious !
Welcome to the Philosophy Cafe in English !
