What we're about

If you have a mind and are looking to feed it with new and challenging ideas, then come belly up to the rhetorical table. Everyone welcome -people of all political, religious and philosophical slants. All that is required is an open and hungry mind that is willing to accept nourishment from the thoughts of others. Various types of meet ups focused on expanding the mind -mainly through issue focused informal discussions.

The art of questioning and attemptive understanding. What? Philosophy in general. Casual discussion, mostly focused on the topic (differs monthly) listed below, with room for conversation flow.

Feel free to share opinions and ideas, as long as you’re respectful of others. If < 11 rsvps, I will likely ask for confirmation of attendance, to ensure enough show up (& likely cancel, if not at least 4 of us confirmed). Why? Perhaps the ultimate question, inquiring the method of function, + intended cause & effect. Application of knowledge gained from that point on, is up to the questioneer.
