Socrates Café is a philosophy meetup that is open to absolutely everyone. We meet weekly to discuss questions that are common to all of humanity. It's held in a casual cafe environment and we encourage everyone to join in the discussion - but there's no obligation to do so. We're bringing philosophy back to the people!
Each meetup will focus around one specific question. Discussions can often veer far of this topic as related questions are explored. This is perfectly alright since to answer any question in a satisfying way related topics and subtopics have to be explored. But the aim is that each of us will walk away with either some satisfying answers to the original question or with some new important questions we have realised need to be explored further.

According to Wikipedia, "the study of group dynamics can be useful in understanding decision-making behaviour, tracking the spread of diseases in society, creating effective therapy techniques, and following the emergence and popularity of new ideas and technologies" - a pretty wide claim. But can philosophical approach contribute something to an understanding of how groups work (or don't work)?
