What we're about
This meetup is a philosophical and psychological discussion group oriented around the ideas of Professor Jordan B Peterson, free speech politics and Judeo-Christian values. We meet in the CBD of Melbourne and online.
Currently there is one Meetup called Estuary which is an open philosophy discussion group.
Scope: Philosophical topics related to Jordan Peterson's ideas, his peers ideas and/or Judeo-Christian values.
We want to have fun discussing deep ideas. We want to analyse our own world view and the ideas of others with the aim of growing in character.
We plan to take up our own individual responsibility to be a positive influence in the immediate world around us in the hope of tilting the world slightly toward the good.
The culture we want to create is a free and open discussion where everyone is welcome to contribute to the conversation so long as we treat each other with common decency and keep an open mind to learning.
The only requirement is that you're interested in what Jordan has to say about things: e.g. philosophy, psychology, free speech, truth, Judeo-Christian values, God and The Logos.
There are no fees. We have cultivated a good community where members voluntarily bring food and this is working well. Coffee and drinks are provided by the organisers and venue.
We are committed to practising these few principles when we meet to help create a safe and caring environment for everyone to open up and share ideas.
We encourage you to engage in:
- Speaking your mind
- Speaking with passion
- Contributing your knowledge
- Debating with people who disagree with you
- Showing kindness and affection
and as a corollary to the above we trust you have the common sense to exercise:
- Courtesy to treat people with common decency
- Patience to not cross-talk or dominate
- Humility to be open to learn from others
- Curiosity to truly appreciate different ideas
- Self control by observing others personal boundaries
