What we're about

This is a "Classic Philo Cafe".

It happens once a month in a cafe in the Latin Quarter (Cafe de Flore).

It is public, free (but you must buy a drink) and it lasts 2 hours from 7 to 9 PM on a wednesday.

Topics are proposed by the attendees and then one of them is chosen on the basis of its interest as a topic for all.

People speak one at a time (there is a microphone).

The "model" is the Cafe des Phares (in french) which is every sunday at the place de la Bastille from 11 AM to 13 PM.

It's fun, ....and serious !

Welcome to the Philosophy Cafe in English !
