We are the Cleveland chapter of SOPHIA, The Society of Philosophers in America.
Our mission is to use the tools of philosophical inquiry to improve people’s lives and enrich the profession of philosophy through conversation and community building. SOPHIA is made up of people from within and beyond the academy, people who are interested in deep, meaningful dialogue, and who aim to enrich public discourse, civility, and community.
This is a group for people who enjoy thinking deeper beyond the talking points and the headlines, as well as talking with others about issues that matter in everyday life and in the public sphere. People who want more civil discourse and open-mindedness to address difficult topics and current events should join us for conversation and community building. Those are SOPHIA's aims: to build communities of philosophical conversation. We want to do that right here in the Greater Cleveland Area!
