Philosophers Cafe

Philosopher's Cafe

The Philosopher’s Café is a weekly get-together to talk about issues at a somewhat more philosophical level, where the range of topics might include justice, politics, ethics, the place of technology in modern life, the role that drama, music and narrative play in the understanding of the human condition, religious belief, ideology, utopia and dystopia, climate change, etc. Those participating might suggest other topics of interest, but must be prepared to risk their opinions, ideas, perspectives, theories or prejudices in a public forum. Each get-together will begin (as all philosophy begins!) with a question.
The Philosopher’s Café is open to all. We encourage people with different
backgrounds, careers and distinct cultures to engage with each other in something like a Socratic fashion — in other words, through vigorous debate and the passionate exchange of ideas.
The only prerequisite (besides attentive listening, clear speaking and a measure of philosophical rigor) is openness to different ideas and perspectives. And don’t forget to bring your sense of humor with you!
