At our Junto meetings, I envision that we'll discuss ethics, politics and philosophy. I envision that the meeting will be conducted in the sincere spirit of inquiry after truth. 

Please also consider joining and asking your friends to join the facebook group:

Here is how the FACEBOOK group  (Philosophical happenings around Jacksonville, Florida) is described:
This is a place where we can post philosophical happenings occurring around Jacksonville. 

I have to limit the members of this meetup to 49 so the price is more reasonable for me. So that's the reason I started the FACEBOOK group that can have unlimited members for free.

Here is why I named the group Junto:

http://phoenixphilosophicalsociety.org/Benjamin_Franklin_s_Junto.php

the following quote is from The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
(written 1771-1788):
  ".... I had form'd most of my ingenious acquaintances into a club of mutual improvement, which we called the JUNTO ....  queries on any point of Morals, Politics, or Natural Philosophy, to be discuss'd by the company   .... Our debates were to be ... conducted in the sincere spirit of inquiry after truth"

According to an audio version of Ben Franklin's autobiography, Junto is pronounced "June-toe." 


We're 49 philosophers

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
