What we're about

The Symposium meetup provides a platform for those who wish to partake in and learn from discussion with others. It will appeal to those who like asking questions ... and who like questioning the answers.

In Ancient Greece, a symposium was a convivial gathering of symposiasts after a meal, typically with drinks flowing to encourage the festivities - ie, a drinking party!

The Symposium by Plato ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symposium_(Plato)) recounts a lively discussion and debate about the philosophy of love (specifically, erotic love). Xenophen also wrote a light-hearted dialogue called The Symposium which covered a wide range of topics ( http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.01.0212%3Atext%3DSym.%3Achapter%3D1)

The Symposium meetup provides a platform for those who wish to explore philosophical questions ranging from love (arguably the starting point of our creation) to death (the end-point), and all the important questions we face in between!

Bring yourself, and importantly, bring humility & open-mindedness. Bring a willingness to ask questions and question the answers.

You will love this space if you are willing to "be curious"; specifically, you are willing to

(1) listen to others with interest (without interrupting),

(2) try to understand them,

(3) share the stage.
