Next Meetup

Discuss On the Essence of Truth by Heidegger
For our next session we will read a short but challenging essay by Heidegger, “On the essence of truth”. It can be found in the standard Basic Writings volume of his better known essays, as well as in PDF form online. I give links to both below. The intention is to get an intro to this important thinker’s work in a tight, highly condensed form, building on our recent discussions of Nietzsche and earlier German idealism. We will go through the essay in detail, taking as much time as we need to ensure we fully understand it. As always, newcomers and thoughtful questions are welcome.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    Welcome to the Phoenix Philosophy Meetup Group! Our purpose is to discover the depths and joys of Life through our philosophical discussions, and to expand our members' mental horizons in a fun, harmonious setting. We discuss thought-provoking and mentally-stimulating topics in order to learn from one another about how philosophy can enrich our lives in ways we may have never thought possible! Our activities include discussions on topics relevant to today's world, classical philosophical inquiries, how the ideas of great philosophers from the past can be useful in the here and now, and how to empower ourselves by developing our reasoning skills; as well as other social events (parties, movie nights, etc.) of interest to our members. We are a non-profit, all-inclusive group that welcomes everyone with open arms!

    And any group member can schedule any event, 24/7/365! Simply post your event on this website!
