Attention local philosophers! Our monthly group, Socrates Café, will not hold its regular meeting date this month, as it lands on Thanksgiving, nor will we meet on our regular date in December due to its proximity to Christmas. Instead, join us Thursday, December 6, at 6:30 PM to help tide us over through the holiday season! We will resume our schedule of the 4th Thursday of the month on January 24, 2019.
Socrates Café is an opportunity for ordinary people to wrestle with the Big Questions, such as “What is truth? What gives life meaning? Who are we?” in a facilitated, volunteer-led discussion.
At each meeting, participants select a question for discussion by democratic process, which is then examined over the next hour and fifteen minutes for built-in assumptions, embedded concepts and logical consistencies (or inconsistencies).
Socrates Café is usually held at on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Main Library, except around November and December.
