We ask, answer and discuss questions and ideas to stimulate critical thinking and to enlarge our perspectives with some concepts and thoughts that we have never thought of.
Our meetups are about our own philosophies of life and not necessarily what the great philosophers and academics have said or written. It is not a debating club or a platform to proselytising. Instead, we place the emphasis on questioning, open mindedness and challenging our own assumptions while listening to and respecting the views shared by others.
**A Socrates Cafe meetup is considered a success when participants leave a discussion with many more questions than they had at the begining.**
The subject of each discussion is voted by the participants at the begining of each meetup. No academic training in philosophy necessary; just enthusiasm for exchanging ideas and points of view.
Everyone is welcome… Any gender, age, education, national origin, race, religion, etc. If you’re shy, just come to listen; you won’t be pressured to speak.
Bob Enteen, an experienced, friendly, easy-going American, created this group and now is run by a team of moderators. If you have questions or concerns, just drop us a message.
Hope to see you soon at one of our events.
