What we're about
Do you need to scratch your philosophy itch at least once a week?
This is a relaxed meetup group for people who enjoy talking about the deeper meaning behind the events in their lives. This is not an academic meetup to read texts and debate them. If you have taken at least one college-level philosophy class, that will help, but it's not necessary. Format for meetings is as follows: members are encouraged to share at least one recent concrete event in their lives that made them think, and the group can discuss them. Topics might include death/dying, living with passion, free will and determinism, consciousness, society and its influence on our psyche, etc. What's going to make this group successful is a collection of emotionally mature members who really listen to what each other has to say. The vibe I'm going for is the one from the film, Waking Life, where all members venture together into the realm of thought and possibility.
