The book Socrates Cafe has been an inspiration for hundreds of meet ups all around the world with a simple enough goal. To bring philosophical questions out of the classroom and into the cafes and make it accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. The only rule is that we stick to discussing matters using the Socratic method to analyse our pre conceived ideas and bring some clarity to our lives. No need to have any background in philosophy or anything, but the meeting will be in English and the moderator may ask you to stay on topic. This is not a current events or free for all discussion but a chance to participant in a focused discussion based on a topic or question which is agreed upon at the beginning of the evening. Please read up on the concept here http://www.philosopher.org/Socrates_Cafe.html and hope to see you there.
