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, moderated discussion.
Based on the work of Christopher Phillips, author of Socrates Café: A Fresh Taste of Philosophy, Socrates Café seeks to revive the pleasures of examining our most deeply held beliefs in an atmosphere of free thinking and energetic exchange.
At each meeting, participants select a question for discussion by democratic process, which is then examined over the next hour for built-in assumptions, embedded concepts and logical consistencies (or inconsistencies).
Alternative viewpoints are encouraged and explored. All discussion takes place in an atmosphere of respect and encouragement.
