The Redmond Socrates Cafe Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

  • May 8, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The idea behind the Socrates Café is that we learn more when we question and question with others. We meet in a public place, is open to anyone who wishes to attend, and uses the Socratic method to discuss a the philsopohical questions. It all started a decade ago when Christopher Phillips, then a freelance writer asked himself what he could do that would in some modest way further the deeds of those noble souls who had come before him and, as William James put it, “suffered and laid down their lives” to better the lot of humankind? The epiphany and also the answer for him was to be a philosopher in the mold of Socrates, and to hold Socratic dialogues with anyone and everyone who’d like to engage in a common quest to gain a better understanding of human nature - who shared with him the aspiration of becoming more empathetic people and more critical and creative philosophical inquirers. There are no prerequisites, and no reading or other preparation is required. You are invited.
