What we're about
We will discuss & share the different philosophical principles and their applicability to our lives, including past experiences, present happenings, and future attempts.
Since Ancient Greece, philosophy has been reduced to sophistry, separate from the life of the philosopher. But the moment has come to reintegrate philosophy into life, due to a profound crisis of meaning that the modern man experiences.
These weekly meet-ups will be a place of free meaningful dialogue in our quest for beter thinking and living.
The ethos of these meetups:
1. We are lovers of WISDOM.
2. We are authorized in practicing philosophy in sofar as we are CONSCIOUS beings in pursuit of meaning.
3. We follow IDEAS, not people.
4. We have the HUMILITY to admit that we don't really know much and we are hungry to learn.
5. We QUESTION everything.
