The idea of Socrates Cafe

From: Dr. Norman R. Wise

The idea of Socrates Cafe is that people in a dialogue can sharpen each other thinking in the process of not only hearing the "conclusions" we have come to but the reasoning and information each person brings to the table. Such dialogue sharpens our thinking skills, challenges us to consider another person's point of view, and be open to more research on issues. We learn in dialogue. Also when two ideas that oppose each other come together they sometimes create a third idea which is better than either of the original ideas. This idea would never have been born except through the interaction of the dialogue. So the value is in the process and can take us to places we have not yet dreamed existed.  Hope to see you tomorrow at 2:30 PM or at 3:30 PM for the general discussion
