The Greater Philadelphia Thinking Society is a Meetup group that brings together thoughtful people for stimulating and civically minded conversations. Meetups include a recurring 10:30 AM discussion on Saturdays and Sundays, where small groups of members join in a relaxed setting to discuss a wide range of topics including culture, design, philosophy & religion, science & technology, psychology, politics, economics, and current events. Occasionally, larger events are held in the evenings, where presentations and discussions are combined with opportunities to meet a larger number of people who share your interest in the topic.
We provide a place and a format to speak up and be heard, to listen and exchange ideas, to explore optional resources and questions prepared by a discussion leader, to raise your own questions, and to share your own experiences and knowledge. We value life experiences, informal education and diverse points of view. We provide a safe, facilitated environment for exploring differences, where inquisitive discussion is encouraged instead of argumentative debate.
We start the conversation so come participate and accept your own genius.
