What we’re about

The Global Agora is facilitated by City College of New York philosopher Massimo Pigliucci. It is based on the principle that philosophy is a conversation aimed at improving our lives. Every meeting (usually online) focuses on a topic in practical philosophy as understood by the Stoics and other Greco-Roman schools. Discussions are often based on a short suggested reading. As Epicurus put it, “Empty is the argument of the philosopher which does not relieve any human suffering.”
