Yes that is a really good idea.
As far as what I'm most interested in to discuss - that would be the field of ethics - how do we determine what's right or wrong and is there even a 'right or wrong' or is it all relative?
Would also like to learn about Sufiism.
And another idea - esp for those of us who haven't read a great deal from the great philosophers - how about a meeting on each of them - to discuss their main ideas and contextualize them in the present time.

What a great idea, Dave. Yes, I love the idea of a section on the message board which gives an overview of the major trends in philosophical thought. Sort of a free wheeling How to Bluff Your Way in Philosophy. It would also be a great idea to have this as a theme for a meetup.
Maybe we can do this in the fall. I am also interested in Salim's great idea to have a discussion about Islam and forms of Islam, like Sufism.
I'm so glad I asked!
