What we're about
Socrates Café Rockville is open to all, the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month at 6:30pm. Socrates Café are gatherings around the world where people from different backgrounds get together and exchange thoughtful ideas and experiences while embracing the Socratic Method; the idea that we learn more when we question and question with others.
Prior to the meeting date attendees will suggest discussion topics, which we then vote on. Everyone can vote for their two favorite questions. When we meet, we usually break into smaller groups of six to eight to discuss the top vote-getters. After 45-50 minutes, we take a break, and then we resume to discuss the next topic.
Though, this may be considered a "philosophical" group, there are no rules as to what is discussed. Those attending decide upon the questions of the night. Usually, the topics revolve around social concerns, morality, and first principles of things.
