Meet other local amateur philosophers to discuss the world and what we know about it.
No prior experience in philosophy is required, just a love of wisdom, a desire to know, and an open mind.
We meet on a regular basis and discuss various philosophical works and topics. Subject matter will typically reflect the interests of the participants, and include metaphysical issues.
Persons of all perspectives are encouraged to participate, whether they come from a more "theistic" perspective or more "atheistic" perspective. Or anything in between! There is no perspective that is censored.
The only requirement is that we treat each other with respect and do not make insulting or ridiculing remarks of anyone.
Come on out and join us!
Welcome, Cincinnati Philosophers!
