What we’re about

Philo Agora is a Sydney based philosophy group that has been meeting for over a dozen years. We have met in cafes and bars in Glebe, Dulwich Hill, Leichhardt, and now meet at Association for Good Government near the Redfern Station. We name our group of philosophical discourse, ‘Philo Agora’, the connection of ‘philo’ - short for philosophy to the Greek word ’agora’, a place or a gathering, physical or intellectual, where people discuss or argue matters of concern.
We convene on the second and fourth Monday of every month. The second Monday is our normal presentation from a guest presenter whilst the fourth Monday is a less structured open forum for those just looking to meet up. The first meeting of the month is a talk of 20 minutes relating to a philosopher, philosophy or philosophical theme. The chairman takes a few specific questions on the talk, and then there is a 10 minute break. The chairman then invites responses to the talk to a maximum of 3 minutes. The meeting closes with the presenter having the last word.
Samuel ALEXANDER is the current convenor.
