What we're about

The Dallas Philosophers Forum is dedicated to bringing philosophy, ideas, and intellectual discussion to an interested and educated audience in the DFW area. The philosophy lectures typically last between 30 and 50 minutes and the talks are followed by an open question-and-answer period which generates lively discussion. The philosophy talks are designed to be engaging and non-technical and thus they are enjoyable by the layperson or academician alike: Philosophy made user friendly.

Group has been meeting for 20+ years and has a $5 fee to attend.

Come at 6:00 or earlier if you want to eat and discuss tonight's topic with fellow philosophers. NO food orders after 7:10 to minimize disruptions.
