What we're about

Socrates Cafe is a movement to bring philosophy outside the academic setting. It started in Montclair, NJ to help those of us who are not professional philosophers develop our critical thinking skills by interacting respectfully and actively with others who share a love of ideas. There are hundreds of Socrates Cafes across the US, in the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

We meet on the last Monday of each month from September to May. During the summer, we meet on one Sunday in July and in August. We usually meet at the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County, NJ. But since COVID-19 we're meeting on Zoom.

Please RSVP the day before the meeting so the volunteer moderators have time to message you the link. Thanks!
