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'!
