What we're about

Welcome to "NYC Socrates Café!"

Socrates Cafe groups are held all over the world - all groups are similar in many ways, but each is also unique in its own way. The purpose of this group is to bring together people who enjoy discussing philosophical ideas in a roundtable setting. The group focuses on a new topic each month and all members have a chance to share their ideas. At Socrates Cafe, everyone is a teacher and everyone is a student - we all have brilliance to offer. Together we can contribute to building a deeper understanding of some of life's thornier questions.

The group will meet intermittently. Meeting place will very by event.

We will have open discussion, but we should do our best as a group to let everyone have a chance to speak - the introverts often have the most insightful comments but are the least likely to speak up in a group.

If you have any topic ideas, email them to the organizer at Garrett@platerate.guru.

Looking forward to sharing a community that supports 'the examined life'!

CONVERSATION DAY 2021 - Annual Global Celebration of Great Talk!

NOT ANNOUNCED YET. CONVERSATIONS NEW YORK PRESENTS: CONVERSATION DAY 2021 Sat., June 12th, 2021, 2-5 pm EST/USA Register on Eventbrite to receive the Zoom link for this worldwide in person and online event: . “Sharing What We’re Learning” Enjoy face-to-face conversations on exciting topics with new and old friends — which has always been the essence of Conversation Day, as you can see in this 5-minute video: https://vimeo.com/342325098 The conversations will focus on these four questions: 1. What’s one important positive experience you have had during this period? 2. What have you learned about yourself? 3. What’s one way that you hope that our society will be different, as we emerge from the crisis situation? 4. What will you do differently going forward – personally, socially, professionally, or politically? In the course of the afternoon, you’ll participate at two different “tables” of 5-7 lively-minded New Yorkers – and, quite likely, others in over 20 global locations ranging from London to Lagos. At the end, we’ll all share the best things that were thought and said, and you’ll receive a copy of that “harvest” by e-mail the next morning. Let’s take advantage of meeting virtually, by inviting friends who would enjoy Conversation Day. We’ll be inspired as we enjoy an afternoon of bracing fellowship, mutual support, and intellectual stimulation!
