I wanted to call your attention to the fact that we will be joined by a highly esteemed and very interesting (and witty!) guest this Saturday: Yakov Smirnoff. He's curious about our discussions, and also eager to meet folks in the Springfield area who have intellectual depth and life wisdom.
Incidentally, Yakov will be appearing on NBC's Today Show Friday morning around 8 AM. The show is visiting Branson. The Today Show Friday morning, Springfield's Socrates Cafe Saturday morning -- I guess Yakov likes to save the best for last!
"What is the good life?" "What is love?" "Is beauty in the eye of the beholder?" Do you like to discuss philosophical questions? Come share your ideas with others who like doing the same. The Springfield Socrates Cafe is facilitated by Andy Johnson, a member of the philosophy department at MSU. For more information about the Socrates Cafe, listen to the profile of founder Christoper Phillips on NPR, http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.ph..., or go to http://www.philosopher.org and click on the link "Socrates Cafe" in the first paragraph.
