Lo que hacemos

We ask, answer and discuss questions and ideas to stimulate critical thinking and to enlarge our perspectives with some concepts and thoughts that we have never thought of.

Our meetups are about our own philosophies of life and not necessarily what the great philosophers and academics have said or written. It is not a debating club or a platform to proselytising. Instead, we place the emphasis on questioning, open mindedness and challenging our own assumptions while listening to and respecting the views shared by others.

A Socrates Cafe meetup is considered a success when participants leave a discussion with many more questions than they had at the begining.

The subject of each discussion is voted by the participants at the begining of each meetup. No academic training in philosophy necessary; just enthusiasm for exchanging ideas and points of view.

All welcome... Any gender, age, education, national origin, race, religion, etc. If you're shy, just come to listen; you won't be pressured to speak.

Bob Enteen, an experienced, friendly, easy-going American, has created this group and now is runned by Raul Caciora, Jacinto and Christina. If you have questions or concerns, just drop us a message.

Hope to see you soon at one of our events.

Who is participating at this meetup? 1. WHERE WE MEET? Cafè de les Delicies Rambla del Raval, 47, 08001 Barcelona https://goo.gl/maps/FLBUUKtZFZA2 2. WHEN WE MEET? We meet every Monday and Wednesday from 19:15 till 21:15 for English sessions and Saturday or Sunday from 19:15 till 21:15 for Spanish session. 3. HOW MANY WE MEET? In order for a discussion to take place smoothly ideally the number of participants should not be more than 15-20 persons. Therefore we have limited the event attendance to 20 persons. If you are on the waiting list because of this limit, and you really wish to attend, you might still have a try to join the event by listening to the discussion. In case we see that some of the 20 'attendants' are missing, you could also join the discussion by speaking. 4. WHAT IS A MEETUP ABOUT? On every meetup we have a discussion using Socratic method: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socratic_method We ask, answer and discuss questions and ideas to stimulate critical thinking and to enlarge our perspectives with some concepts and thoughts that we have never thought of. The main purpose of these meetups is to enrich ourselves with the perspectives of others, not to convince others about our own perspectives. Our meetups are about our own philosophies of life and not necessarily what the great philosophers and academics have said or written. It is not a debating club or a platform to proselytising. Instead, we place the emphasis on questioning, open mindedness and challenging our own assumptions while listening to and respecting the views shared by others. A Socrates Cafe meetup is considered a success when participants leave a discussion with many more questions than they had at the beginning. 5. WHAT TOPIC IS DISCUSSED AT THE MEETUP? Participants suggest topics at the beginning of each meeting. We then vote and choose that event's most popular topic for discussion. No academic training in philosophy necessary; just enthusiasm for exchanging ideas and points of view. Some examples of subjects chosen on previous meetups: - What ideals are worth dying for? - Why are we never satisfied? - Why human beings are informed that the society is going wrong and the leaders are well informed about it and things continue? - Is identity necesary? - What is ethical pricing and greed? - What is post-truth? - How can it be that people in democratic societies are so obsessed about power? (Desire to be different, better, stronger than others) - What is friendship? 6. WHO IS PARTICIPATING AT THIS MEETUP? Anybody is more than welcome to join our meetups. Our events gather people from different backgrounds, different cultures, while no philosophical background is mandatory. Our usual participants are people that have a hunger for deeper understanding of themselves and the world. People that value deep, honest and respectful dialogue.
